The Green Man (Capracara Rmx)
Disco Bloodbath Recordings’ third release drops this October with synth-beat duo G&S turning in ‘The Green Man’ EP featuring a remix from Soul Jazz/DFA/Comeme artist, Capracara.
Started just a few months back, Disco Bloodbath Recordings has already set its stall out as a label of note, with two wildly different releases from Damon Martin and Hand Plant doing the Disco Bloodbath name proud.
G&S, aka Nadia Ksaiba and Matt Waites, made a name for themselves at Our Disco and Liars Club that, along with Trash, helped with the resurgence of modern eclecticism around the turn of the century. The duo’s previous releases were the formidable ‘Show Me The Good Times’ on Dissident and ‘Portable Control’ on Codek and now we’re treated to the next instalment of weighty electronics.
The unmistakable punch of a Roland TR808 drives ‘The Green Man’ while jabbing tones add to the gritty foundation that slowly opens up into a stirring, electro-disco cut characterised by soaring strings and light chords.
Capracara takes a break from his History Clock label to deliver a buoyant, skipping house take on ‘The Green Man’ which stays true to the originals vibe but toys with the energy playfully via some nifty arranging and subtle atmospherics.
Finally, ‘Dirk Bogarde’ cuts an imposing yet bright figure. Cascading white noise, juddering toms and delayed crescendos all add to an already brilliantly melodic track that shows off countless influences.
