Analog Mutants – Confidence / If Ya Let Em (7″) [Nobody Buys Records NBR45-006]
DJ Grazzhoppa, DJ Snafu, and Phill Most Chill, collectively known as the Analog Mutants, have returned with a bang!
They bring you “Confidence,” the unequivocal igniter of any party. Enormous drums, the vibrant presence of live saxophone and organ, a tempo that’s off the charts, and a chorus that we can’t help but belt out even while commuting at 9 in the morning. In the words of Phill Most, “At times, it’s astonishing even to me, the incredible prowess I exhibit as an MC.” Absolutely on point, Phill Most! We witnessed earlier renditions of this track setting the festival scene ablaze last summer. It’s safe to say that this 45 record stands as the ultimate party anthem on the label!
Now, flip the record to savor an exclusive treat only found on this 45, the “If Ya Let ‘Em (Remix)”. Phill Most Chill delivers a cautionary narrative about seizing control of our destinies. A uniquely unconventional beat takes center stage, dynamically evolving and shifting from the very first bar to the final note. Snafu and Bankrupt Europeans’ Craig Cloy unleash their creativity on bass, piano, and cello arrangements, skillfully crafting over a sturdy, timeless breakbeat.
Grazzhoppa once again dazzles on both sides with his turntable wizardry, effortlessly blending scratches into the musical fabric and blurring the lines between beats and melodies.
