Leftroom | 20.04.2015
Dropping this spring see’s Leftroom newcomers Hector, Montel, Marcman and Neil Parkes, drop a collective EP ‘The Extended Family Part.4’ on the label, we have had a sneak preview and its impressive stuff all round from the guys. Leftroom are not shy from providing upfront material and breaking new artists to the underground music scene.
The Extended Family EP is up to Part 4, with previous artists such as Blakkat, H-Foundation and Laura Jones all providing tracks for the record. This time round the label shines some light on some of Leftroom’s core acts for the future, namely Desolat’s Hector, Let’s Play House’s Montel, and two up and coming talents, Marcman and Neil Parkes.
Opening up the release is Hector’s ‘A Clown Called Snapper’, which is featured on Leftroom boss Matt Tolfrey’s fabric 81 mix compilation, the Mexican artist delivers his signature percussion-led style with a seven and a half minute bumpy workout. Montel’s ‘Control’ follows and lays the focus on shuffling rhythms, sweeping synth stabs and a hooky vocal uttering the track title.
On the flip side Romania’s Marcman provides another drum-led number, laid out over eight minutes with crunchy percussion, tension building strings and a wandering bass hook, while Neil Parkes follows up his ‘Me & You’ EP on Leftroom Ltd with ‘Come Back’ to round things off, providing an up- tempo hypnotic cut fuelled by processed vocal chops, warbling synths and chuggy bass licks.
