Sound Pellegrino Thermal Team – Bassface / Pretty Pretty Good
Sound Pellegrino Thermal Team celebrates three years of spaced out genre bending with two club friendly instruments of destruction as one of the most hilarious, inventive and constantly unmimicable labels in the game.
First thing’s first, “Bassface” takes us back to the days of Miami and Atlanta Bass music, made for the rollerskating rink, but with an added macabre 808 trap feel and venomous digi-medieval undertones.
However, the one that’s really going to get everyone’s attention seems to be “Pretty Pretty Good” – not only is it a shimmering burst of woodblock percussion, panting and g-funk laser blasts in the background, but it’s an obvious nod to the infamous HBO cult sitcom Curb Your Enthusiasm, which is maybe the best unmined use of dance music source material up unto this point.
Also, Teki and Orgasmic have their own online store now, and while there’s no vinyl there, there are plenty of stylish pieces for the tech-house Karl Lagerfeld in you.
