Lab Overview

Hot tropical house from Gerd Jansen's Running Back label! This is one that'll stay in your bag to quite some time. Telephones (who's previously popped up on some Sex Tags and Full Pupp releases) makes his debut for the label with some heavy heavy vibes. "Blaff" straddles the Balearic, disco and house divide with its effortlessly smooth percussion, mellow organ stabs and beefy bass line. Think Todd Terje if he toned things down a bit (not surprising as Telephones is another bearded Norwegian). But there's more to this EP than just "Blaff." Side two continues the island vibes with more modern takes on the vintage Irma and Calpyso Records sound. Take your time with "Untitled (The Island)" as its bassline slowly creeps in to join the shimmering FM synth sounds. "Hot Destinations For A Cooler You" closes things out on a slower note but keeps the vibe alive. Recommended.
