Some laid back and hazy LA Funk flavoured Chillwave right now courtesy of the awesome Cascine. This time the noise comes from a collaboration between the Ford from Ford & Lopatin, Joel Ford henceforth known as Airbird and Ian Evans A.K.A. Napolian and their début single together, the double A-Side In The Zone/Special, out now.
In The Zone features vocals from labelmate, Miss Erika Spring, ex-of Au Revoir Simone, and neatly blends a little Disco, a little R&B, a little SynthWave and a little Indie in a big ol’ cooking pot which they simmer over a Chilly-Funk fire. Erika’s hazy vocal flows with the tracks eddies, occasionally bubbling to the surface. The chanteuse’s dreamy wisps of vocal smoke find their way in the nooks and crannies of Airbird & Napolian’s slapping basslines and compelling synths. The B-Side, Special, warps up Airbird & Napolian’s sound with a little retro 80s flavour and a generous helping of House pump and dirty Funk. Working a filtered French Touch groove, these guys makes something ecclectic sound totally dancefloor.
