SHIT ROBOT (aka MARKUS LAMBKIN) has delivered two new tracks that seem to effortlessly set just the right mood for the dance floor. Side A, "I Got A Feeling," plays like a song in two complimentary acts. In the first half, SR builds slowly from minimal beginnings; in the second, he ups the ante with nods to house and a pleasant easing prior to restraint. In fact, it isn't until almost the exact midway point of the song that vocals--provided, notably, by SAHEER UMAR (HOUSE OF HOUSE)--first appear. From here onward, things really get going with electro-handclaps, bassy synths, spontaneous buzzings, a driving beat and Umar's echoing vocals all heaped upon each other--blending enough to give the track depth and weight, but distinct enough that any reveler can appreciate the precise, purposeful placement of each element. Side B, "Norfolk Nights," quickly lays down a foundation of old-school beats, then gets to work building slowly, space-y synths atop. Lambkin resists expectations by dropping the beat and letting things get eerily quiet before he starts from scratch and builds from the bottom up all over again, one cosmic synth pattern at a time.
