Jesus Pablo - The F Word
In its Original form, The F Word harks back to the days of deep Jersey garage with its simple piano loop, crisp beats, vocal wails and understated disco b-line. Tony S serves up a remix that's a touch more energetic and floor-oriented, while Tom Lown goes the other way and takes us further into late-night, sofa-surfing territory with glockenspiel (??) hits and pads that are a thousand miles wide. And then bringing the EP to a close, a refix from Poland's Robot Needs Oil is more stripped-down and techy with tons of space in the production, looping up the "running to you" vocal hook and adding some wicked organ drops.
Every bit as we've become accustomed to from the prolific Liverpudlian producer, with mixes to suit a range of moods/times/settings.
Out: This week
About: You can find Headtunes on Soundcloud, on Facebook and at their own website.
**PS: UPDATE 4 MAY
After speaking to Tom today I can now tell you it's not a glockenspiel, it's a marimba. I am useless. However Wikipedia lists them both as members of the xylophone family so I wasn't THAT far off!
