Marc Smith steps right back on to the dancefloor with the Summer of Love EP. With releases on Blipswitch and Paso Music; Auralism co-founder Marc Smith joins the Chillin family. After a life-changing moment when Smith was pulled on stage to play guitar with Blues legend B.B. King at just 12 years old, Marcs commitment to music production has been unbridled. You Want To, Smiths first track on the EP, laces twisted, compelling spoken word over a penetrating bassline a la Brett Johnson, along with percussive elements reminiscent of Plastikmans classic Spastik. Marc knows you want to dance, so do it!
Taking it down a notch with Stepping Back, Marc joins forces once again with vocalist Kevin Knapp after their recent gem Hindsight out on Untitled & After. Steppin Back is a mid-tempo feel-good juggernaut showcasing the sultry, funkdafied vocals of Knapp, along with Smiths attention to the most intricate of details. Luring, filtered vocals; seductive chords rising from the foundation of crisp drum programming; and just the right touch of an emotive guitar riff - all weaving through a provocative bassline, providing all the necessary ingredients for this song to be an instant classic. Sing it with us, Im gonna be here for YOU!
Glasgow, Scotland-native OOFT! aka Ali Herron steps in to rework Smith & Knapps Stepping Back. Initially releasing music on L.E.S.S. Productions, OOFT! now releases on his Foto Recordings imprint. OOFT! runs with some of the most notable names in underground disco - oh, only folks like The Revenge and 6th Borough Project, and has releases available on Instruments of Rapture, rememory, Delusions of Grandeur, PPF and Wolf Music. Staying in the vein of old school, OOFT! accentuates the chords for a late night Limelight-esque vibe allowing Knapps vocals to offer the lift. Heavy-hitting yet smooth; OOFT! Every time feels like the first time!Chillin Music aint half steppin
