Modular Cowboy: Cheap and Deep
A couple of releases on new techno label Modular Cowboy. First, some dub techno from Cheap and Deep out later in August. Next one tomorrow.
Cheap and Deep’s Words, Breaths & Pauses gets remixed by Norman Nodge. I’m not quite sure what’s going on in my head but I could have sworn the vocal at the start said ‘breasts‘ not ‘breath‘. Anyway. This is a barely there bit of dub techno. This is the sound of your heart beating in your ears when you’re trying to sleep. Outside of that there’s just a little faint synth and the vocodered vocal. Makes for a disconcerting but welcome listen. Quality.
Blurb: Cheap and Deep Rides Again (12” vinyl & digital download) – This inaugural release on Modular Cowboy features brand new material from Cheap and Deep (a.k.a. Jay Ahern) alongside two remixes of “Words, Breaths and Pauses,” a track originally released as a limited edition 12” via Berlin’s Hard Wax shop, just prior to Cheap and Deep’s live debut at Mutek 2010. The remixes come courtesy of Berghain resident DJ Norman Nodge as well as duo Jonsson/Alter (Henrik Jonsson and Joel Alter) from the Kontra-Musik label in Sweden. The release also marks Cheap and Deep’s return to the scene, with the new track “Beautiful,” a modern take on the Chicago acid house tradition, featuring vocals by Crissy Liu with additional production by Morgan Packard. Cheap and Deep Rides Again is set for release through Hard Wax - http://www.modularcowboy.com/releases/cheap-and-deep-rides-again
