TBR: February 19th
Following the momentum and warmth of Trants, their first release on the self-managed label, the Irish twosome unveil Club Orange. Another triplet of house and analogue floor fillers barge their way to the front of the picture like Donald Trump at a photo op, but this time it's on the back of their own merit. The A-side first course is served in honour of one of Ireland's most famous faces, footballer Roy Keane. Named after the Manchester United trophy winner and international hero, the track asserts itself as a high energy people pleaser, full of bounce and moving rhythm.
The introductory two-stepping beat piles in with a happy tempo, as chords in the middle ranges prepare to begin their build-up. The progression evolves at a faster pace once it has begun, every layer meeting a high-point which becomes a standing stone for something new. Before long, string melodies are gracing the top while a dancing and funk worthy beat pushes the music home. A smooth disco-esque vocal line greets the pinnacle of the track as a neatly arranged topping of flavoured cream would. Happy energy of willingness to dance at full expression saturates the feel of the six and a half minute mix.
A lower tone reveals intent from the silence in between the first two tracks. An emotive harmonic vocal line, reminiscent of Groeni, shimmers on the gently pulsing surface. As the track shifts gear, a high energy percussion section adds its quick time flow to the already building pressure. Analogue sounding synths jostle around in arpeggio style flutterations, granting a space-age direction to the otherworldly feel already mustered by the choice of vocalist and sensations. Playful high end twirls sparkle on the off- beat to culminate the astronomical arrangement, bouncing from the offshoots of tribal infused beats which underscore the work.
Final track, Club Orange, lends its name to the single. Although listed as a B side, it is immediately apparent that this momentum building track deserves its position. Chiming melodies breach the rhythmic bass drum within interesting loop structures, before a synth and vocal hit the scene with all the glitz that the newly arrived funky bassline allows. A sampled energetic crowd fills odd spaces and good feels synthesiser shines as the notes between the notes. We all want to be at Club Orange, it sounds fun, tropical, and full of all the right kind of people. This track takes us there, in chapters of differing but equally as imaginative surges through the story of a good time.
