'Don Arp' kicks off this 12" - a mid-tempo
banger that works as perfectly early-on in a set as it would at a peak-time strobe-n-smoke moment. The vibe is pure heads down funk - from the irresistible groove to the ecstatic cut up vocals - but it's the filthy, Funktion One-troubling bassline that fully detonates this basement bomb. Don Arp is going to tear up all sorts of dancefloors for a long time to come.
The dub version of 'Don Arp' puts a new slant on the same growling groove, dispensing most of the vocals and letting the synths bubble and the clattering hats and snares dominate.
Sharing the B side with the dub, comes 'Facebook'. Way more fun than the social network, H.O.S.H drops another heavy-grooving body-mover. Clocking in at 114bpm, the track hints at that slightly deranged part of the night - a pitched down vocal, a neurotic melody and enough grit and attitude to rock any flagging feet. Poker Flat's incredible run of recent releases goes on.
