We’ve got a new EP out, a 5 track solo EP from none other than Ron Basejam! The vinyl has just landed in Juno 5 days early so nab your copy now in time for the weekend.
The EP kicks off with the most club focussed track ‘When I hear that Music’. A relentless groove weaves its way through delicate keys, bossy horns and soulful vocal samples as the pace rolls on. Ron’s experience in arrangement really comes to the fore here as we seem to be constantly surprised by more and more intricacy. It’s the definition of music to wear your sneakers out to.
The second and final track on the A-Side is the more hypnotic ‘Kag’ whose blend of dreamy funk and hypnotic vocals come together to create a low slung sun drenched track for summer.
On the flip we have ‘We Know How To Work It’ which features the signature vocals of Crazy P bandmate Danielle Moore in the most upbeat and catchy track of the EP, then ‘The Fire’ seems to channel some very Prince link spirits to keep us warm with some very complex vocal treatments indeed. Finally finishing off the EP is a reprise of ‘When I Hear That Music’ where Ron has a bit of fun reducing the original to its barest components and going a dubbier deeper route.
We’ve got a tasty exclusive premiere for you today. The wonderful opening track from Crazy P’s latest album ‘ Walk Dance Talk Sing’ titles ‘Like a Fool’. It’s brimming with all the trademarks of Crazy P’s sound. Nocturnal allure and a voluminous bassline set the tone although the vocals have a much rougher patina then usual, which adds a welcome diversity and soul to the beginning of what is a beautifully warm and assuring album.
