Rob Clarke & Al Bradley – Apache Communications EP

Al Bradley Rob Clarke Apache Communications 3am
A split release here from two names that will be very familiar to regular TIWWD readers, with one track apiece from 3am Recordings label boss Al Bradley and Beats Me Music main man Rob Clarke.

Apache on the A comes from Mr Clarke and is a comparatively uptempo slab of slammin' deep house with plenty of bounce in its veins (and its big-ass b-line), and a Zebedee-like bouncy springy noise thrown in to boot! Over on the B, Al's Skirmish is slightly more sedate, and features spoken male "you must be crazy… can you dig it?" vocal snips and mellow piano chords atop a tribally-inflected backing that sounds a bit like the music from Crash Bandicoot. Sounds weird, I know, but it works.

Very soon we're promised an Apache Communications Remixed EP, with Al reworking Rob's cut and vice versa. But these two originals will do nicely for now.

Out: This week

About: You can find 3am Recordings on Facebook and Soundcloud.
