“You know when a vinyl arrives with dizzying artwork, artist names like Acid Mondays and track titles like “Dice Me Up” that you’ve simply gotta give it a listen.”- JUNO
A new label based out of Manchester called Illusion Recordings, with Tom Craven as mastermind of proceedings. We used to go to these guys’ parties BackToFront in Manchester and its no reason their big party at Sonar this year only took 2 days to sell out, a month in advance.
This one was hard for us to decide which track to preview, they are all ace…but this ‘dice me up’ captures the sleaze vibe on the EP that brought it to our attention in the first place. A heavy 808 edit, vibing on the 90s r&b edits sound we have been rinising in out warm-ups, this one has a perfect vocal to tune ratio.
The rest of the EP is equally as ace, old MK and Terry influences coming through on some utter pumpers. Buy the wax at JUNO.
