fof024Artists & TitleRoger Gerressen – Liberal
Label: Fear Of Flying Recordings
Catalogue#: FOF024
Date: 2013
Format: 12″ Vinyl
Country: UK

Tracklist:
A.
Liberal
B1. Mint
B2. Drunk Game

Credits:
Roger Gerressen switches to the main FOF label for his next release, ‘Liberal’ taking up the entirety of the A side with a killa’ groove resplendent with knife edged percussion and tripped out synth stabs. Flipsides ‘Mint’ goes subaquatic with a serious slice of heads down bizinizz – a male spoken vocal refrain repeats throughout to give a hypnotic edge. Lastly, Roger teams up with his buddy Smokin’ G on ‘Drunk Game’, super rounded, housed up beats and an undulating synth / string line permeate the groove lending the ep a sense of levity.

nailArtists & TitleNail – Ode Rammel
Label: Fear Of Flying Recordings
Catalogue#: FOFLTD11
Date: Feb. 2013
Format: 12″ Vinyl
Country: UK

Tracklist:

Credits:
Fear of Flying delve into 2013 with a look back to the past with this solid 4 tracker of tracks from Nottingham’s Nail. Originally released on the UK’s revered DIY Discs imprint all the tracks on this ep have proven hard to get hold of over the preceding years with nary a copy available on Discogs for anything less than a King’s Ransom.
‘Clear My Mind’ was recently featured on Dyed Soundorom’s DJ Mag covermount mix whilst ‘Try’ was included on Andrew Weatherall’s early ‘Essential’ mixes and ‘Til The Feelings Gone’ was a standout on the recent Fabric compilation by Zip. With a pedigree like that its an easy choice to make, especially with the bonus cut ‘Optimus’ which proves to be the tougher of the 4 tracks giving a nice rounded edge to the ep.
