Håkan gets ready to ROCK!

Well it just doesn’t get any ‘Better Than Sex’ does it?

Tony Naylor selects We Are Woodvillle’s latest release from Håkan for the Guardian Guide reviews section and says it with a glowing review:

“Clearly the news hasn’t reached Sweden yet that we’re all beyond bored with ramped Ed Banger electro. And good thing too, as this is unexpectedly brilliant. All biblical drums, shredded metal guitar and a breakdown that consists of some drunk blokes beatboxing into a Dictaphone, its lithe, punchy and winningly daft. Now let that be the last word on the matter.”

Fags & Booze

WAW08-FLASH_ATKINS-FAGS and BOOZE PACKSHOT

Flash returns from his triumphant 4th Plinth ‘Disco Rave Off’ in London’s Trafalgar Square with a solid four track EP of leftfield house, disco and downbeat dedicated to his favourite things in life, fags and booze.

First up, Scotland’s finest baritone sings of his life as a gigolo over a thudding jazz bass driven thumper. It resonates with deep and dirty touches of wild pitch before a crescendo of serious guitar disco action to wrap things up.

Next, everybody’s least favourite 80s Old Romantics Spandau Ballet get their only good song Chant Number 1 (Can’t keep The Pressure On) given the disco re-rub treatment with Crazy P’s Danielle Moore doing her best Tony Hadley impression. An analogue bass sits over shuffling dancefloor beats with plenty of electronic action before breaking to some heavenly Rhodes, strings, arpeggiator and pads.

The Flow takes things down a notch with a down tempo track that tips its hat to Kruder & Dorfmeister, dubstep and Talk Talk. It features LA rapper Sean Reveron who has worked with David Holmes and The Beta Band in top rhyming form. There are sirens, strings, feedback, off kilter beats and a break in the middle that uses a kit sampled in the cellar of Hoxton boozer, William IV.

Finally there is a dub of G.I.G.O.L.O that does what it says on the tin by keeping things simple but with extra wild pitch ‘on the one’. The revival starts here!

Heavy Deviance – Things that go bump in the night

On a dark misty night last month we got a bunch of mates and drove into the country to a farmhouse near Hebden Bridge. Hired a classic car, costumes and props plus of course a bit of kit like lights, matches and cameras. We had sat down and worked on a script for a video that summer and low and behold we had a ball filming our labels second video flick for the Heavy Deviance release.

We here it is in its all its glory – what a treat – check out Ernest Hobbs…..
