Last Autumn the below track, by the dutch duo Mason, circled around online and had our little blog tails wagging. The tune is everything we want in a club floor-filler, with it’s four-beat pounding away behind a classy, well-produced whirlwind of brooding synths.
It’s with guest vocalist, Roisin Murphy, from the band Moloko, that the track is lifted from it’s sexual glow into a more threatening attack. Like all the best dance tunes out there you are transported somewhere deeper within your mind. This is dance music for those moments on the club floor where you simply have to close your eyes and let it take you over.
After all of last year’s initial hype the Dutch pairing of Iason Chronis and Coen Berrier made us wait until earlier this month before they finally released their debut album, They Are Among Us. It’s a tidy, consistent piece of electronic work, marrying up vocals and beats as well as anyone that we’ve heard in recent years. You can purchase it here.
The reason we hand them a Recommender post today, is not only because Boadicea is extremely decent, but the accompanying video arrived in the last few days. It’s a well-directed tale of revenge and empowerment and well worth your time. It’s yet another piece of work that helps deliver Mason to the public’s attention, which is exactly what they deserve having produced such high quality work. (MB)
