SOUNDS SUPERB VOL2-CODEK-FAB TAK/AIRY DUN/ARMS NUMOND
CRE.018 - VINYL 12" SOUNDS SUPERB VOL. 2 NEW AND SEALED 1) ARMS NUMOND - Late Night Flight LAX 2) HARMONIKA LYDER - Siegfried Der Drachentoter 3) AIRY DUN - Cockney Wide Boy 4) FAB TAK - House Of Funk 'Sounds Superb 2' sees Codek Europe continue their quest to become the heir to 99 and Ze Records, albeit with a modern Euro! twist and a sense of humour. Everybody is talking up Hercules and Love Affair at the moment for resurrecting disco but this label, and In Flagranti in particular, has been digging that particular grave and robbing its contents for six years now. The result, which includes this Sounds Superb 2 EP, is fun, flamboyant and camper than a gay window. There are four different artists on the EP but three of them use the same ingredients of computerized, rolling Italo beats plus one or two extra bits of garnish. In the case of 'Cockney Wide Boy' (which strongly recalls Smith and Hack's remix of Herbert's 'Moving Like a Train') it's a relentless alto sax sample which sounds stolen from James White and the Blacks. For 'Late Flight LAX' it's a cute science video melody Can would have loved and a languid female vocal. 'House of Funk', meanwhile, gets in the occasional 'yeah' and disco interludes over an addictive bassline. The odd one out is Siegfried Der Drachentoter which sounds like an old Atari trying to figure something out. Over the top of an early techno beat. (Trust me, it works). On top of this, Codek really deserve praise for encouraging people to buy the vinyl as most of these tracks sound as good, if not better, at 33 than they do at 45. 'Cockney' in particular becomes sneering and tense as it moves around a Rekids-esque K-hole. - residentadvisor.net Since the first volume in the Sounds Superb EP series featured one track from In Flagranti and three other artists who we'd never heard of before (or from since), I'm gonna assume that all four of these fake-sounding artist names are really In Flagranti in disguise. Arms Neumond starts it off with the plodding downtempo boogie of "Late Night Flight L.A.X.(1);" sounds like this might be an edit, complete with a lovely vocal sample about sunsets. Next up, Harmonika Lyder's "Siegfried Der Drachentoter(2)" has gotta be original production - a stuttering, bloopy track that sounds like something from an educational science film you'd see in high school (the part that shows all the blood circulating through your body). On the flip, we got Airy Dun's "Cockney Wide Boy(3)" with tight disco grooves and a no wave flair courtesy of one skronky filtered sax, honkin' away into the night. Fab Tak rounds it out with "House of Funk(4)" - another edit? - working with a minimal drums / bass / handclaps loop and tiny vocal snip, letting loose occasionally with a wakka-chikka guitar breakdown. - turntablelab.com second release from IN FLAGRANTI's new series of various artists releases : SOUNDS SUPERB. Killer selection ranging from original productions to punk funk classics re-edits. full perfect package. HIGHLY RECOMENDED !!!!! - loop23.de This is the second EP in the Sounds Superb series from Codek, featuring four artists that are new to me. For starters we have Arms Numond with "Late Night Flight L.A.X" a very Euro disco number, a proggy walking bassline, soft synth pads and a nice vocal about sunsets and rock and roll. Next up is Harmonika Lyder with "Siegfried Der Drachentoter" a juddering, stuttering electronic disco number with a minimal beat and bleeps aplenty. Over on side-B is Airy Dun with "Cockney Wide Boy" an uptempo driving groove, crazed whistle noises and some mad filtered horns in the middle, this will sound bonkers live! Last up is Fab Tak's "House Of Funk" a lowdown funky groove based round a four bar loop, vocal snippets, neat beat edits and big handclaps all dropping before ther big funky guitar lick comes in. - piccadillyrecords.com Another four tracks of digital boogie, disco and punk class on Codek. The slow, boogie plod of 'Late Night Flight, LAX' by Arms Neumond kicks off the package before the 80's science TV show sounds of 'Siegfried der Drachentoter' finish off the side. On the flip two more disco-tinged cuts sit making this a package that everyone will get something out of.
