Mudkid - The Sugar Express EP

A three-tracker here that will please those that like it very deep and a little bit leftfield – which will come as no surprise to anyone familar with the Greta Cottage Workshop back catalogue.

Sugar Express itself is almost womb-like in its deep house pulsations to start with, before getting more experimental and out-there as the minutes tick by. It'd be cool for late-night, sofa-bound purposes but I'm more taken by When The Mud Falls – still quite mellow but also dancefloor in a lazy, epic, Balearic kinda way. It also seems to have the sound of a puppy whining on it, which is quite unusual. And then, finally, Of You is back to the more ambient-y vibes, albeit still with a 4/4 kick thoughout.

It's not a record that would probably feel all that home in clubland, but this is a solid bet for the more horizontally-inclined.

Out: This week

About: I know not one thing about Mudkid, except that he's called Franklin De Costa and he's based in Berlin. But here's his Soundcloud page where you can hear LOTS of mixes and grab some free downloads, if you've a mind to.

Greta Cottage Workshop, meanwhile, can be found on that t'internet here.
