Get funky, ladies and gentlemen! This past Monday, Australian jack-of-all-trades, Stu Tyson, or Bass Kleph as he is more commonly known in and around the circuit, released his Touchdown LA EP on his own Vacation Records. Consisting of two tracks, “When You Were Deep” and “Electrical Funk,” the EP is pumped full of summer time groove, and gives off a seriously refreshing hint of classic House.
The first track of the pair, “When You Were Deep,” pays some serious respect to the seemingly long-lost genre of classic deep house. The silky combination of funky, repetitive plucks and playful horn action will no doubt have you shufflin’ those blue suede shoes all over the dance floor. Seriously, it will happen.
The latter of the bunch, “Electrical Funk”, takes that groovin’ house formula and adds a touch of disco to the mix. Add a subtle synth build, and in the end we’re left with a suspenseful, body-pulsing dance track that can only really belong to the BK, himself. A must for any summertime spin sessions.
Overall, Touchdown LA is a quality, fun EP that would make a bright addition to any summer time set. If you are interested in the man himself, be sure to check out our interview we did with him a little while back, which can be found right here. Bass Kleph’s Touchdown LA EP is out now on Vacation Records, and is available for purchase through Beatport. Get on’t.
