- Call Of The Cuckoo EP
Leftroom | 02.03.2015
Viva Music boss man Steve Lawler has not a put a foot wrong in the last few months, with a hugely successful release on Jamie Jones and Lee Foss’s Hot Creations label ‘House Record’. Matt Tolfrey’s Left Room records have quickly snapped up Lawler’s next release ‘Call Of The Cuckoo’ and its hits the airwaves in March.
‘Call Of The Cuckoo EP’ is a two track EP with two originals that do not disappoint ‘Call Of The Cuckoo’ and ‘Can’t Stop’. With Steve being at the top of his game for such a long time, its nice to see him shying away from his original tribal Viva music sound.
Title cut ‘Call Of The Cuckoo’ opens up the two tracker and in typical Steve Lawler fashion we’re treated to an amalgamation of rugged bass tones, penetrative, unfolding drum programming and cleverly chopped vocals. The end result is a powerful dance floor cut as you’d expect from such a seasoned producer.
On the flip side Lawler offers up ‘Can’t Stop’, which lays its focus on a heavily swung drum groove, chuggy bass sequences and wandering arpeggio licks to round things off on a raw, up-tempo tip.
