„Underpass“ is one of these typical Piemont “monsters”, that seem so accessible and neat but develop a “second life” once you‘ve been exposed to them.
What starts of as being abstract becomes almost catchy and sweet and soulful. Well this could be categorised as futuristic Post-Chicago-Techno, if we only knew what this was. Amazing sound design,1001 sounds melting together in total harmony, sliced beats and vocals so accurately that they all fall happily into each others arms. If you don’t dig this then there is something wrong with you.
“Twice as Long”, well we do not know what they are referring to, but we recon this could apply to the deepness of this fantastic “super bouncy” track. This in a positive way “silly” and uplifting track has all the guts of a grand Piemont track, that ought to keep all the die-hard MBF fans happy.
The third track on the vinyl 12” is “Walkway”. A P-Funk monster with so much understatement that is makes glass break! This track is a pure soul seduction, a psychedelic ride maintaining the suspense and emotion present in all of their work whilst increasing the sense of “funk”.
This track tackles Oslo funk and frankly this track has more funk than 99% tracks around.
The new duo Intuitiv has recently emerged from the vibrant new Cologne techno scene.
