Filippo Blasi Foglietti is another Third Ear find well worth checking. The John Nixon Memorial EP is trippy, dark, deep and grooving. There are four different grooves here, all of which can disconcert and disorientate. Perfect for tripping up and tripping out the dance floor.
Artists & Title: Roger Gerressen – Liberal Label: Fear Of Flying Recordings Catalogue#: FOF024 Date:2013 Format: 12″ Vinyl Country: UK
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.
Artists & Title: Vali Dobrogeanu – Drona Label: Fear Of Flying Recordings Catalogue#: FOF023 Date:Feb. 2013 Format: 12″ Vinyl Country: UK
Credits: More Romanian talent up next on Fear of Flying. ‘Drona’ mixes things up with a heavy breakbeat mixed with subtle melodic touches to give an ethereal quality whilst ‘Oan’ freshens up the vibe with a shuffling slice of bliss.
Artists & Title: Nail – Ode Rammel Label: Fear Of Flying Recordings Catalogue#: FOFLTD11 Date:Feb. 2013 Format: 12″ Vinyl Country: UK
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.
