Show Some Respect EP
TBR: 29th January
Lighting the way for a full-length 44 track album which includes styles like Bmore, Techhouse, Ghettotech, Electro, and Juke, DJ Godfather releases Show Some Respect EP. Introducing a snippet of the sounds we can learn to expect from this producer, the treat is in the unwrapping as we get to grips with this new sound collection. The work on the album has been mastered in such a way that the tracks bleed into each other, making seamless transitions of power seem like child's play. The following six months will see a gradual release of the entire production via these teasing yet generous stand alone instalments. This way, other DJs get samples of greater works that they can acquire and listeners can enjoy the definitive sounds of DJ Godfather.
It begins with Show Some Respect. An up-beat snappy rhythm starts and it's heavy on snare. Then, bass and sound effects wander in with a casual swagger. Meandering synthesiser tones dig out channels of bass-line while wispy and diverse sonics dance in a well-made choreography. Playful edges and plenty of drumming energy thrash out their differences over the chewy and deep-reach undertones. A choppy vocal enters, sneaking in syllables in expert time. Dancing forces spin us around as interesting and catchy sounds create a unique digital brew.
Track two begins with a driving rhythm, laid back yet fast in tempo. Shakers and bass dig around the pockets for a lighter, entering the realms of Sunday Morning Spliff. The music opens with a new layering of quick hats that roll and tumble with the addition of slow and graceful piano tones. Keyboards sway over like flowing curtains or the ends of a dress as its owner walks briskly past. Plucked strings from violin echo into blank spaces as framings of temporal beats bubble and effervesce.
A retro futuristic synth motif begins, it's melodic and rhythmic. Fun bass and drumming create a backdrop for a man talking about strippers. These Strippers takes us into the mind of a person who has lost self-control over two professional sex workers. All that pent up sexual energy has to come from somewhere, what drives people to such activities? As a work of art, the music makes you think about the basic desires and instincts that some find more difficult to handle than others. The track is listed twice, once as a vocal version and again as a running instrumental that holds the energy for another round of the circuit. It also gives us a chance to listen to the progressions and harmonies without the distraction.
