The last few months have been shaping up pretty well for Bodhi, with their recent remix of ‘Angels’ by The xx seeing over 281,000 plays on SoundCloud and 5,700 hearts on Hype Machine, and their own track ‘Don’t You Know’ hailed as the second most downloaded of December 2012 on XLR8R.
The forthcoming ‘Culture/Deliquesce’ EP from the pair is just as covetable. Opening track ‘Culture’ is a club-ready riot of housey piano stabs and assertive female vox, while the deeper ‘Deliquesce’ (meaning ‘to become liquid’) more than lives up to its name, breathy vocals washing over fizzing beats.
“Simply put, ‘Culture’ is one classy house record,” Graeme Sinden comments, “and one of the best I heard last year. I’m so happy to be finally putting it out. Every DJ and music person that has been in my studio and who I’ve played this to has completely swooned over the chords. Throw in that almighty sub and it’s a new classic.”
Fellow Welsh wunderkind Ifan Dafydd and young Parisian Bambounou complete the package with two very different remixes. Dafydd tackles ‘Deliquesce’, tenderly chopping and distorting the vocals and augmenting with strings, while Bambounou twists ‘Culture’ into a pneumatic techno stomper.
Look out for ‘Culture/Deliquesce’ when it drops on 4th February on Grizzly.
