B2. Nightsun (Seahawks Remix)

Shadow Kids (Mike Simonetti and Secret Circuit) took a peyote fuelled trip down to the cold and barren flats of Chile in a beat up VW Camper packed with analogue gear, energy drinks and as much of Radio Shack's dead stock as they could cram in, gripped by the obsessive desire to intercept the cosmic transmissions from the distant reaches of our galaxy and translate them into a sonic language we can all understand.

"Laughing At Jazz," starts off proceedings with an infectious string arrangement that rides the wobbly baseline like a pro cosmic surfer before out of nowhere a Chicago tinged piano creeps into the mix to bring things back from space and onto the dance floor. "Nightsun" plays out like a theatrical play of different sections and is intriguing from the first beat (although it is over 2 mins before the 4/4 kicks in!) and continues to surprise throughout its 8 minute playing time, with psyched out melodies, snappy percussion and a 'womp womp'  bassline before entering a final stage that goes for an almost heads down vibe. Ruf Dug emerges from an interdimensional wormhole to turn in an excellent wobble boogie version of "Laughing At Jazz" that takes in disco elements whilst punchy piano chords keep it hooky. Ruffy gives the track a little extra panache by rerecording the vocals and drives us direct to the dancefloor with a killer bassline sampled from wherever Glimmers nicked "You Rocked My World" from. Lastly, cosmic disco's branch of the David Icke appreciation society (or Seahawks as they're more commonly known) do the seemingly impossible and crank up the psych meter to full throttle making "Nightsun" an even grander experience with a running time of just over 12 minutes! The listening equivalent of Lord Of The Rings, this is epic, beautiful & an absolutely stunning piece of work.
