MAM - The Elektrospective EP
Having last year celebrated ten years of collaborative success, and following on from their full-length albums, ‘Garden of Eternal Summers’, ‘Love Lights Music And More’ and ‘More Music, Lights And Love’, Leeds-based duo MAM – aka Miguel Campbell and Matt Hughes – are back to present an exciting new EP, ‘The Elektrospective’.
Out on July 21st via Outcross Records and comprised of 6 tracks, it’s a project that leads with the summer in mind – full of sun-kissed, sultry grooves, comprised through their recognised formula of guitars and synthesisers.
Leading with purposeful, psychedelic synths and a hypnotic groove is opener ‘Dance’, with the EP’s leading track ‘Elektrospective’ ramps things up to tell a funk-fuelled, grittier tale of it’s own with the dancefloor firmly in mind. ‘Solar Expression’ introduces warming synths and a simplistic guitar riff suited for the sunshine, whilst ‘Midnight Trader’ increases the feelgood factor and tempo with a retro guitar riff set against summery keyboard chords. ‘Inner Shade’ continues to showcase the summery theme, with soft, emotive keys complimenting a slinky bass guitar riff that works as the perfect soundtrack to any warm summers night.
The final ‘Free’ brings Elektrospective to a close in suitable fashion, with a relaxed, downtempo synth arrangement and a hazy, guitar that compliments the echoey female vocal effortlessly, rounding off the EP in sophisticated style.
