"As The Dust Settles"
An extended 8mins of organic hypno-funk that could have come straightoutta Dusseldorf in 74'
Snorkel were formed ten years ago by multi instrumentalist Frank Byng, and have quietly but determinedly trodden the path of Kraut and Free Jazz inspired improvisation ever since, with their residency at the Adelaide pub in North London the stuff of legends, and their recent album on the Slowfoot label, Glass Darkly warmly received by everyone from Pitchfork to Boomkat.
Here, the opening track of the album appears on the longstanding Airtight label in an extended and remastered form, 8mins of organic hypno-funk that could have come straightoutta Dusseldorf in 74', with mantra chants, tape effects and loose rhythms swirling around the raw groove to create something fit for headphones and more adventurous dancefloors alike.
On the flipside, Italian space commandoes the Diaphanoids take to the controls and conjure up a slo-mo disco-kosmiche chugger, complete with laser driven riffs and a fat, chugging bassline.
Definitely one for the heads, but as the tempos slow down and the genre boundaries continue to blur, there's something here for disco freaks, kosmic kommandoes and Kraut heads alike.
Written and produced by Snorkel.
Remix & Additional Production on B The Diaphanoids.
