TUNE D.Foe - 6ixty 8ight
Ramrock Red Records are immensely chuffed to be unleashing ‘La Belle Bouche’ EP - the debut release from D.Foe, two reclusive, creative dropouts, who guard their privacy fiercely, making Daft Punk look like garrulous bon viveurs. The EP starts off with the dreamy and hugely evocative ‘The Heat’ – I close my eyes and I’m back in 1965 at the poolside’s edge in a chic Riviera hotel rocking a huge straw hat and sunglasses sipping a Campari. This is what a mirage sounds like…..’6ixty 8ight’ and the ‘D.Funk’ remix of the same track hark back to the halcyon days of Acid Jazz, Mo’ Wax + Talkin’ Loud all rolled into one. ‘Love and Hate’ is like an Italian Job car chase on steroids – tough jazz drumming, flute, sax interceptions, Hammond stabs – it’s all going on. And finally, ‘Priti Vacant’ featuring Mark Professor – draw your own conclusions – this ain’t no love song.
