Following the hazy fever dream disco of their last release on Exploited, Homework throw on a couple polo shirts, pull their socks all the way up and step out onto the courts for some Wimbledon inspired tennis tech-house action for Made To Play.
Okay, no more painfully made journalistic tennis metaphors. Instead, let’s talk about how the sample from The Isely Brother’s 1964 track “Take Me In Your Arms” sounds so utterly at home here amidst the track’s sun drenched piano riffs. The album track is almost double the length of the video cut, which gives this one just enough time to ride out the powerful bassline, reminiscent of the euphoria that you get listening to Daft Punk’s “Discovery” album while running into the ocean naked.
Without a doubt, this is classy summer beach party music arriving at the perfect moment.
Rally Racquet Club will be released on the 20th of June, with a remix by Oliver $ that’s almost in danger of outshining the original. You can preview the whole EP on Made To Play’s soundcloud page.
