Having respectively scaled the less saturated ranks of global club culture, British underground stalwarts BICEP unite with Irish nu-house producer Ejeca for a summer-seeking freebie entitled “You”. True to its sub-title, Ejeca’s piano version leads with candid keys and steady grooves throughout, using warm melodic digressions to spark a stern benchmark in this collective’s guise over modern house music. We may not quite be at the season of sun kissed clubbing, but “You” remains a vital aural harmonizer enroute what promises to be an active season for these fine UK talents.
Belfast duo Bicep have had little trouble injecting the industry with a steady output of vintage House gems of late. But on the heels of a successful debut on their new Feel My Bicep imprint, Andrew Ferguson and Matthew McBriar knock out one of their most distinctive original productions to date in ‘Feel It’.
Playing out with the scattered energy and inherent attitude of a seedy basement band, the duo’s minimalistic approach is both tantalizing and refreshing amid the more predictable realms of Electronic music. Armed with a flare of the retro vibe that has made a notable return in 2012, ‘Feel It’ is yet another strong indication that the world is ready for the more traditional sounds of House music.
