DescriptionIf you ask the Canadian producer and DJ Edward Currelly aka Eddie C to name you some things he hasn't done yet but always wanted he answers: Visit Greenland. Sell 45s off the back of my motorcycle in Jamaica. Those who know the music of the former countryman that left the Canadian nature to get inspired by the lively cultural jungle of Berlin get a winking smile on their lips.Because those who know his music know that the answer is not only a dream - it is also a dreamy picture of the essence of his music: laid-back, deep, and heartfelt dedication - thats what his sound is about - like chilling out on the seat of your Honda CB200 en route to your favourite reggae shop under the clear blue Caribbean sky.His second album Country City Country is full of such a vibes, highlighting the broadness in Eddie's taste for music. In the dubbed out album opener To Each Their Own, you can hear the echoes of Jamaica cleary. Then his record passes away into some cool Hip Hop instrumentals full of haunting samples that easily loop in your head.Already here you are bewitched by Cs gifted hand for playful musicality that goes far beyond the average concept of a track. His Hip-Hop inspired tracks leave the usual soul loop map behind while diving into some truly Cosmic zones full of melting melodies.With the fifth track Drinkin and Thinkin, the man who has been releasing his delicately crafted music since 2009 on labels such as 7 Inches Of Love, Endless Flight, Sleazy Beats, Karat Records, or his own imprint Red Motorbike, starts to drop a more demanding danceable funk. From then on, genres seem irrelevant and Eddie C lets his musical love affairs free wheel through West-Coast-Rock, Balearic, Funk, Cosmic, Boogie, House, string-laden Disco deepness you name it.I hope a small bit of my musical interests come across. he explains about the diversity of styles which are held together by a unique funkiness that is hard to resist. As a youth Eddie was always involved with music. A multi-instrumentalist and passionate record digger, he played in many experimental bands as a young man and later worked in radio at University. In the early 90s he was lucky to experience many of the great Techno parties in Toronto and Detroit and gained a great amount of inspiration from like minded friends and other music addicts. From 2000-2011 he "went on a bit of a sabbatical", in the Rocky Mountains in the west of Canada, where he began to really focus on production, deeper digging and his other true love; skiing.Country City Country jumps airy and laid-back from jazz to house, from dry jacking rhythms to cool rolling bass grooves, from wild clapping drum beats to playful uplifting Brazilian piano house madness. I don't really write music with the thought of using it in a DJ set later he says. Instead he writes music that listens to his heart in order to reach the heart of the listener. "It is all produced on quite affordable and perhaps outdated gear to be honest" he says, proving again that it's not what you've got, it's what you do with what you have. What Eddie C found in his machines is a funk that hits the fan wherever he is: in the deserted Canadian mountains, the green Jamaican hills, or in the moving sunday afternoon Berghain wilderness.
