The Owl & Finch – Keep It Up EP


New one on Whiskey Pickle Records by their new signing The Owl & Finch. Two tracks, each with two remixes. All the good stuff flows from the track Keep It Up. This has a lovely, almost acid jazz, jangly guitar line that makes this a proper summertime track. There are remixes from Richard.Gear who takes it more into proper dance floor territory but doesn’t forget the synths, and Zack Highwire who goes for a more beats-based approach with woozy bass for late night discos.

And here’s a free download from Richard.Gear A Feelin (Amaz’ Sleazy Dub Mix)

Blurb: Whiskey Pickle Records heads for the sky with their first international signing: Sydney, Australia’s The Owl & Finch. The Keep It Up EP is the debut artist release from this pair of high-flying, disco aficionados and is anything but ‘for the birds.’ With several cuts on Dave Allison’s Editorial Records, The Owl has topped the disco charts of Traxsource and Stompy with his solo re-edit work. Here he offers his precise engineering skills to the equation, while Finch supplies the live bass and guitar grooves in “Keep It Up,” a summertime, dance floor blazer that’s sure to earn spins from their native homelands to the shores of Ibiza. The b-side, “Found Another,” features sombre, melancholic piano stabs and soulful, lamenting vocal hooks with an undeniably Balearic bass line.

Handling the remixes are Whiskey Pickle regulars Johnny Blackouts, Zack Highwire, and RiCHARD.GEAR. Johnny’s Found a MILF version twists the island vibes into an epic, acidic dub odyssey, perfect for that rude awakening at sunrise by the sea-donkey you thought was a mermaid. RiCHARD.GEAR takes the titular tune into Italo territories of synthesizer madness while the Highwire version of “Keep It Up” is a tense, percussive breakbeat affair. The accompanying Highwire remix of “Found Another” finds the tune plunged into deep, moody realms with a brooding bass line that’s gonna rattle cabinets and keep dancing feet on the floors.

  1. Apropos of absolutely nothing, I just listened to Dreamfish and had an overwhelming wave of nostalgia wash over me. I want to go back.
