NOTE: storage wear (from the transportation) on the sleeve, perfect otherwise. “Roots Underground” company sleeve, printed inner sleeve, not sealed at the factory.
Roots Underground is at its 6th release, with this new sophisticated EP.
A collab between italian producer, but Berlin based, Luca Murgia a.k.a. TWO THOU and the jazz ensemble HOBBY HORSE, composed by Dan Kinzelman, Joe Rehmer and Stefano Tamborrino.
Feats are very present throughout the whole record, like in the exotic broken beat opener THE CHASE (A1), where Eric Demuro bass licks intertwine with Kinzelman’s flute and Two Thou beats.
INDIA SCI-FI (A2) is a sultry ambient painting, enriched by balearic flavours, courtesy of Mike Matias, sending the listener in a dreamy altered state.
The B side opens with a collaborative rework, CASCADE (B1) by Two Thou with Brooklin’s Eric Porter, better known as Afrikan Sciences of an already released track by HOBBY HORSE (Helm, 2018)
Porter lays the drums and Two Thou morphs the hypnotic double bass/bass clarinet loop in a solid organic “house” track, with deep and dubby vibes, that will be appreciated by picky clubgoers everywhere.
The EP includes also the original version of CASCADE ( B2)
