Bang 2 Drum.
What can we say about the current state of House music. It’s bloody brilliant. There are so many talented artists on the scene, so much good music, it’s hard to keep up with it all. Here we have a brand new EP, coming in from German duo Mat.Joe and UK House duo CamelPhat. Two tracks, it’s the ‘Bang 2 Drum‘ EP and it’s superb.
If you haven’t heard of CamelPhat, then there is something not right. Their hit ‘Cola‘ went viral and straight into the commercial charts, while they’ve also been delivering some major EPs on Sola Records, Suara and various others. Mat.Joe have worked with the likes of Sonny Fodera and Defected Records, while also producing and releasing on Relief Records. They continue to build up a reputation for themselves. Now both have joined forces for the two track ‘Bang 2 Drum’ EP which has been released on ElRow Music.
The first track on the EP is ‘Bang 2 Drum‘ and this has a real underground feeling to it, along with a Tribal like vibe. Sketchy, womping electro flows over the top of a Tribal like drum in the background, with the two working wonders together. Adding in the vocal sample, the drums, the synth work, it all seems to come together and work really well. This is a track which is going to be a real groover on the dance floors. ‘World In Action‘ is a brilliant piece of work from both duo’s. With the vocal sample setting the tone, it allows the track to build, before dropping down into a gritty, underground and sketchy drop. The bass line is raw and overpowering, but that’s exactly what you want. CamelPhat and Mat.Joe have impressed, big ups!
