Black Girl / White Girl
Roush Label | 02.08.2019
After a series of formidable peak-time house for Relief and Repopulate Mars, Black Girl / White Girl return to Roush for “Astrovision”, another record of expertly built dance floor cuts.
Fat, fast and filled with percussive floats and skips, expect the new Astrovision EP to get plenty of play. On “Invasion” and “Space Odddity”, Black Girl / White Girl mean business, ticking some very satisfying boxes while effortlessly percolating between techno and house. It’s easy to see why their cuts are so popular with the likes of Jamie Jones, Maya Jane Coles, Mark Broom, and DJ Deeon. “Invasion” is a bumpy house cut that’ll lend instant enigmatic old-school charm to any club floor it graces. Zeroing in on exquisite drum programming, strutting hi-hats, and tumbling synth sequences, it flaunts a raw electro tinge likely to cut through any crowd – it’s devastatingly effective.
“Space Odddity”, a sly slab of dynamic house with broad appeal, packs enough punch to rock DC10’s terrace on any given day. Somehow, Karin and Ty manage to continuously build up the energy without adding too much of anything, removing bits for impact rather than building on them. On “Space Odddity”, Black Girl / White Girl’s signature manifests in the slippery acid sequences, and like so many Black Girl / White Girl hooks, it’s inherently addictive. It would be easy for Black Girl / White Girl to continue down the road of straight-to-the-point house bangers, but this follow-up shows that they’ve got more genre-busting tricks up their sleeves. Get used to the sound of these, because you will likely be hearing them all summer long. The “Astrovision” EP is out August 2 on Roush.
