Tracklist 12”: A1. Lucretio – Higher & Higher A2. Lucretio – Give Out B1. Marieu – Hit The Power B2. Marieu – XA Swing Short info: Lucretio and Marieu, AKA The Analogue Cops, are certainly no strangers to Hypercolour, having previously released three singles for our Hypercolour and HypeLTD labels over the last few years. The duo are back again for the “Flimsy Output” EP, following a run of well received EPs on Memento, Moondance and the Sabotage label. Lucretio steps up with the first of two killer tracks. On “Higher & Higher”, we are served up some prime time underground vocal house vibes; a filtered vocal and string combo flourishes around a hefty kick drum whilst acidic bleeps rain down in a true warehouse style. On “Give Out”, Lucretio opts for more astute sampling, wrapping a soulful vocal around a loping percussive beat and incessant keys, taking things right back to the raw power of house music. On the flip, Marieu reduces the BPMs on “Hit The Power” for a lazy, shuffling jam that manipulates film dialogue and shifting micro beats, all pinned down under a hulking bassline. Jacking things back up for “XA Swing”, Marieu deploys reverberating beats, garage light organs and transposed vocal refrains for a real old school soulful jam that evokes shades of classic Moodyman, Nick Holder etc. Another set of first class tracks from The Analogue Cops then, bringing their gritty yet funky warehouse house vibes back to Hypercolour!
