Sideshow - Slide - Simple Records

Reported by Trackitdown TID on July 29, 2004

Following on from the highly praised debut Sound Of Today’ comes the first EP from Sideshow’s forthcoming LP for Simple. Sideshow is the Bristol born producer, DJ and musician Fin, also recording as Fink for Ninja Tune. Slide' is lush, cinematic minimal house with flashes of Sideshow’s signature dub stylings. Aimed at home chilling, it features Fin on the slide guitar for an exercise in personal clarity. buttaface’ is an electronic ode to a beautiful blond with skin like butter. Sexy and confident it has melancholic tones and haunting textures. This is the instrumental of buttaface’ with a full vocal version to follow for the album. On the flip, Mathew Jonson strips the guitars from slide’ and the pads from buttaface’, adds his own bouncy analogue bass-line, dubby high-hats and crunchy snares, and re-builds a lush, throbbing and distinctly hypnotic techno groove. He's quickly gaining a reputation as a talented house and techno producer through his releases on Itiswhatitis Records and appearances on compilations for Kompakt, Tresor and React.
