Pitch & Toss sees the boy from Tehran hooking up with Kling Klong label boss Martin Eyerer for an EP of solid, instrumental house grooves. It's in a similar vein to the album but possibly a little more techy and contemporary sounding – though Jay Haze does add some nice retro-sounding piano chords to his mix (or mixes – got sent two but I think there's only one on the full release?) of the title track. The pick for me, though, is B-side Shibuya, a simple percussive workout with some nice pad action that'll keep 'em jigging along nicely.
Meanwhile, since we last spoke on the subject of Namito, Great Stuff have seen fit to put up a pre-listening page, so to hear the album Eleven for yourself, just click here.
The album's out on July 26; this single is out next week.
About the label: Although Namito is a Kling Klong mainstay and Martin Eyerer is the boss of Kling Klong, this actually comes atcha on Systematic Recordings, such is the crazy world of dance music. Systematic is a house/techno label run by Marc Romboy and has put out 60-odd releases by the likes of Booka Shade, John Dahlback, Zoo Brazil, Will Saul and even the legendary Blake Baxter. See the label website for more information.
