Trapez Artist

I said I'd be back with my favourite track of 2005, and boy, I wasn't kidding! This track reached the dizzy heights of No. 12 in Mr Soft's Top 50 records of 2005, but it has an even more special place in my heart. The first time I remember hearing it was when our very own Puffin Jack started playing it at the summer Tape parties, and it really is one of those records that grabs you by the balls and commands you to be the happiest man alive! 2005 was a great year for Trapez, but this, their 50th release on the label, was easily the crown of their achievements. The deceptively hard kick with which it starts gives way to short, sharp bursts of melody and a ridiculously barmy cut-up vocal (if you can even call it that) before THOSE euphoric synth riffs come in and take you away to the all-night beach party of your dreams. Seriously great minimal house shizzle from a consistently exceptional label.

OK, you guys are fucking SICK, and I mean that as the highest possible compliment. It puts my little mp3 blog to shame. Thanks for the tunes and all the new directions they are going to send me off in.

If you get a chance come over to my place and sample some of the stuff I put up. http://blacknoise.blogspot.com

Thanks Hector. Checked out the site - good to see some Basic Channel and Carl Craig stuff up there. I'm glad that someone's really appreciating the music that we're bringing to light. We'll get you in the links next time around.

The Patrice Baumel track's terrific. The cut up vocals near the start are a sample from George Kranz's 1983 electro classic Din Daa Dah, well worth searching out if you haven't heard it before.
