Sir Lord Comixx EP next up on Jules Dickens & Colin Dale’s Abstrakt Dance
Abstrakt Dance Record’s second instalment comes from a veteran of underground House and Techno, Sir Lord Comixx, aka Amoon Andrews with his ‘Trading Places EP’.
Amoon has been putting out records under various aliases since the mid-nineties on quality labels like ACV and Eukahouse and has juggled a dancing career alongside a versatile and passionate love for producing music. He has danced with some of the world’s best and comments, “Because I love to dance to music, and I need the music to dance, I am wholeheartedly now concentrating on my musical side.”
This special release leans strongly towards the original sound of Detroit House and Techno with three originals from Sir Lord Comixx, opening with the warm grooves and metallic claps of ‘Trading Places’, to the techy beats and layered melodies of ‘Canvas’, followed by the reverberating strings and dark vibrations of ‘Red Light’.
The EP also includes two remixes from Abstrakt Dance label owners, Colin Dale and Jules Dickens. Colin’s remix of ‘Canvas’ with its breathy vocal samples and pulsing electronic progressions makes for a rousing, sensual mover from a man who knows how to maintain a full dancefloor, with over 20 years experience under his belt. Jules’ rework of ‘Red Light’ is inspired by the 90’s era of Detroit Techno warehouse parties in London. It features the haunting voice of Finlay Cowan (aka Subway Slim), best known for his illustration work for Pink Floyd and Muse.
