Aybee shows his other side with the 7 short tracks on this EP. While the aural palette is similar to his 4 to the floor work, the beats here leaning more to the hip hop side. Funky & deep, the way you’d expect, but with a twist.
Mike Huckaby lets loose on Vladislav Delay and Pole on this excellent 12″ for Slice Of Life. Huckaby’s S Y N T H remix of “Keno” was a considered highlight of Remasters & Remakes, Halo Cyan’s exhaustive remix project of Delay’s SISTOL recordings from the late 90s. Released only on the Double CD and as download, it was begging for a vinyl release, and thanks to Slice of Life that is now possible. One long, bubbling Motor City groove primed for the early hours of a sweaty basement, it is complemented by Huckaby’s equally fine revision of Pole’s “Silberfisch”, all driving sub bass intricacies and tightly wound metallic percussive grooves.
