promo packshot WILD013: Eskimo Twins - Apikoros Release date: 03rd of December 2012. There are artists you feel a strong connection with straight away It's in the music, the attitude and maybe the fact that wherever you go, they seem to have been there before! Eskimo Twins have been on my radar for a while, I have been playing their Judas EP a lot and was aware of their production though other artists we're working with People Get Real, the Countach or Mr Bozzwell... My feelings were confirmed after meeting the Eskimos in person in a nice beer garden in Brixton just below their studio. We just got on straight away and realized we had a lot in common both in terms of our musical influences (eclectic) but also in term of the approach we like to take when putting records out. So here we are a few months down the line, releasing their first Single on Days Of Being Wild. I always liked Eskimo Twins musical approach, strong synths and the organic feel of their music. They have a real talent for making electronic music that sounds very grounded and with strong melodies running through and I felt this shone through even more on the 3 tracks that compose that Single. Opener Apikoros is perhaps the most up front track on the Single with its chopped vocals echoing on top of 909 percussion's. This is a slightly darker take of cosmic dance music, based around a riff played by a hectic arpeggio that develops throughout. It's catchy but slightly deranged as well Ariam, is a bouncier affair, if I may say. Keeping in with the sonic of the Single, synth sequences waving in and out and very strong electro riff, there's a kind of rock n' roll energy on that track with the rolling drums, claps and organ chords, while an end of the world sci-fi film soundtrack plays on top. Finally, Akashic could be an old John Carpenter soundtrack but remixed by Giorgio Moroder. A new wave melodic synth lead takes us into a slice of cosmic slow disco that wouldn't seem out of place in an Andrew Weatherall mix, who has been supporting the Single recently. Acid lines and drums fills cascade on top of a driving bass. Retro futurism at its best. We're very proud to be putting out this Single, as to us it feels and sounds amazing. You can crank it up super loud and dance to it, but it also has such a strong sense of texture and melody that it plays equally well outside the club.
