You Want Her Too / Peeling Oranges
Paradise Palms Records
TBR: 7th June
Alex Warren aka Kiwi has shown his face on many of the happening labels of the moment. Electronic music is far better off for his input and it shows with the number of names who feature his work on their catalogue. We've seen him on Moda Black, Disco Halal, Optimo, and now Edinburgh's very own Paradise Palms. This is their 11th entry on the roll-call of musicians for this label, and adds one more collector's item to the highly sought after 7” series. Maybe it's the fact that the digital and the vinyl press have different versions of the music that gets people interested? We don't like to miss out, that's for sure!
It begins with a moochy house-beat, tapping drum and slow kick bring on a solid wall of percussive happening. Kiwi himself adds a vocal chant to the mix, unusual for this type of music but not unheard of. The human soul has its place in digital music. From out of the shaded areas, a sonic blip melody strikes a delicate tone. It echoes and reverberates through misty rooms while the persistent percussion stomps onward. New synth pads creep in on the other side of the loop, allowing a dualistic adventure to hum through the heavy drums. Swirling effects on the tom drums bring about a vortex of up and down melody which fades into disparity while the vocal chant evolves. This brings about a steady chord progression, lifting the down side dance energy up a level.
Peeling oranges begins with a staggered beat and electro blip tone. They work together to form a spiral stair that crafts a neatly portioned journey into the sky. Space-age sound effects swirl and swoosh while the drums gather momentum and energy. Bass arrives without a second to lose and it insantly hits the floor with wild and inspiration fuelling moves. Then, what could be a train whistle shines out in sonic beams across the top of the sound-press like a lantern on a lighthouse. It swoops across the sonic scenery and delves into the corners to pick out all the people dancing. This more upbeat and melodically enchanting number is bound to prick the ears of prime-time dance club goers.
A short but worthwhile entry to the electronic music dream, Kiwi's You Want Her Too and Peeling Oranges has something for both rooms of the club.
