Released 7th October 2016
The second release on the vinyl only series of Apes Go Bananas finally drops. The label is the new imprint from Steve Bug and Clé, who together make up the production team for the releases. As with the well-received first EP, ‘All We Have ‘ is straight-up, no-nonsense, dance floor-filling house tracks. Lead cut ‘All We Have’ settles right into the groove with crisp and funky percussion, chi-town chords and amazing vocal samples. It’s got peak time written all over it. ‘She Cargo’ makes its influences pretty clear via the title, and the track certainly references some of the iconic sounds of the home of house. Thick, rubbery bass lines, squiggly synths and firing percussion combine to deliver a suitable a homage to the windy city. ‘Ape Parade’ is built from some similar materials, but the chords are a little more lush and deep – synth strings and keys add a sense of the epic, and everything is tied together with a sick kick / snare / hat pattern. Three modern killers for the floor, infused with the spirit of classic house.
