Cobby & Porky – Capture EP (preview)
Here’s a lovely surprise. A collaboration between Steve Cobby and Porky on their new Capture EP, the first of many such collaborations I hope. Two downtempo lounge funk tracks which are deeper than the implications of the UK’s exit from the EU.
Two tracks on offer. First, We’d Like To Capture Your Mind, which is the funkier of the two. Blends the 70s with the best of mid 90s downtempo. Stropharia Cubensis is more warped, both in terms of the electronics and with the tinkly xylophone (can a xylophone be tinkly?). The warped nature is perhaps not surprising when you realise Stropharia Cubensis is a species of psychedelic mushroom whose principal active compounds are psilocybin and psilocin. Shrooms to you, mate. Fry your mind quite beautifully with these tracks.
