Olivaffair - Generations EP

The debut release from a new UK label – always worth shouting about in TIWWD's eyes.

The Generations EP comprises three tracks in vinyl form, four if you buy the digital release. Bad Rendition is bumpin' dancefloor deep house, Generations itself is more your late-night sofa surfer with spoken vocal samples, while Last Stand makes me think Olivaffair misspent at least some of his youth dancing in fields as the sun came up… best of all, all three feature the kind of fat analogue bass that's graced great British dance music ever since the days of LFO and Tricky Disco. Digital buyers also get a Luke Pompey Remix of Last Stand, which ups the dancefloor ante with tuffer percussion while toning down the sunny Balearic vibe a little.

A very strong debut release indeed, show some love people!

Out: This week (30 June to be precise)

About: This comes atcha on the brand spankin' new Definite Ridge Records, who are based in the somewhat unlikely location of Barnoldswick (a tiny little town now technically in Lancashire that was part of Yorkshire until 1974 and is still regarded as such by locals, geography and local govt fans). The label's run by Olivaffair himself, AKA Leigh Oliver, and this is their very firstest release ever, but there's more in the pipeline and they've got their new media presence pretty impressively locked down already cos here's their website, Soundcloud and Facebook.
