Late August will see the third release on London’s Mutual Friend Recordings from UK producers Ethyl & Flori, featuring label head duo Our Mutual Friend for an EP entitled ‘Lacewing/Burnside’.
Long-time London based friends and regular collaborators Ethyl & Flori have been foraying between the blurred lines of house and techno with releases on labels like secretsundaze, Aim and Fear of Flying for the last 6 years – and with a glowing reputation under their belt, 2015 saw the duo launch their own imprint E&F Records. This time however, their most recent venture is a release with London label Mutual Friend Recordings and combines the duo’s talent with enigmatic label owners and Friends Of Ours London party curators Our Mutual Friend, who have previously played alongside the likes of Jane Fitz, Juju & Jordash and Juan Atkins.
Ethyl & Flori open the package with otherworldy cut ‘Lacewing’, driven by a rolling bass and delicately sprinkled with ethereal chime hits and lingering piano melodies. Up next, Our Mutual Friend deliver a hypnotic, layered remix of ‘Lacewing’, instead laying the focus on down-tempo percussion and glitched samples.
Our Mutual Friend open up the flip with ‘Burnside’ which lays down chattering bass hits shuffling alongside soothing melodic chimes, then Ethyl & Flori deliver a toughened remix of ‘Burnside’, injecting some of their relentless techno style by deepening the cut with murky synth notes and dark atmospherics.
The new EP ‘Lacewing/Burnside’ from Ethyl, Flori & Our Mutual Friend is out on Mutual Friend Recordings 30th August 2016.
