Let's Get Lost vol. 16
This came out while I was Stateside...
b. Keep On Editing
With Eddie C's previous creation for Let's Get Lost barely out of the barrel of the the label's finely engineered hand cannon we are bombarded with two more selections from the Canadian turned Berliner's seemingly limitless arsenal of secret weapons. Masterful re-arrangement as ever ever from the now seasoned producer. Side A yields wonderfully quirky balearic vibes while on the flip a horn and string led disco barn stormer reminiscent of a Rub-n-Tug unknown gem provides what is, for us at least, the highlight of the EP. Two very different tracks and a great package all round.
KZA's ever dependable Let's Get Lost label welcomes Endless Flight regular and recent Berlin transplant Eddie C into the fold for a full release after the boy from Banff recently shared a side with the label boss on LGL No 15. Any worries that a move to Europe's techno mecca might have engendered a musical swerve to a Berghain friendly sound will be allayed when you hear what's on offer with these two tracks, plucked from the enviable collection of Mr C and tweaked for your dancing pleasure. Both untitled, the A Side is an oddly endearing Balearic number with off kilter handclaps and a big grooving bass line, but the disco lovers will head straight for the flip. A superbly masked edit of a Patrick Adams classic, the way Eddie C slowly reveals that classic string refrain is pure joy!
