The Allergies – Mash Up The Sound / Sometimes I Wonder (7″) [Jalapeno Records]
A – Mash Up The Sound
B – Sometimes I Wonder
Time to nice up the place as The Allergies re-work some deadly dancehall vocals into party-starting hooks on their latest club-troubling single, ‘Mash Up The Sound’.
Taking cues from the house music and reggae fusion found in the early noughties, they serve up fresh funky 4/4 fever, twisting full-fat disco drums and FX around some speaker shaking bassline business.
‘Mash Up The Sound’ is also available as a limited edition 7” release. With a B-side bolstered by the vintage soul-sampling track, ‘Sometimes I Wonder’ – A trip into classic The Allergies territory, with tough drums propelling bittersweet beats across firing horn loops and chopped up deep south vocals from the late sixties.
