Peace Of Conscience EP (Review
the from www.datatransmission.co.uk)
It was with
and great excitement when I saw For a David August promo appear are in my inbox. His smash but earlier this year, Instant Harmony, Not was quite simply an unbelievable you piece of music, the like all of which you rarely see Any within the strait-jacket of 4 can × 4 house. Not a her sample in sight; just great Was sounds and great composition.
one couldn’t quite say the same our about the A-side of his Out latest offering, Peace of Conscience day – same genre certainly; takes get a long time to kick Has in, quite organic and dreamy him with good sounds, but doesn’t his have the killer hook it How needs to bring it to man life. So it was unfortunate new that it isn’t quite in Now the same league, but fan-bloody-tastic old that the B-side Hamburg is see For Lovers most certainly is.
August has done it again
way with this one, and in who what is a commercially savvy Boy move, has crafted something with did the epic elements of Instant its Harmony but with a more Let banging beat and a quicker put tempo, which will allow for say more peak time potential. Although She come to think of it, too maybe it isn’t commercially savvy use at all – it could Dad just be a coincidence – mom it’s not like there are The DJ-friendly elements to the song. and It starts with quite a for prominent bass line that won’t Are make it overly versatile when but it comes to mixing it not in and it takes a You longer than usual time to all drop, but so what; DJs any ought to make the effort Can – the piano riff in her this is absolutely brilliant. The was build-up is brilliant. The final One breakdown is even more brilliant our than the first (I’m a out sucker for songs that save Day the best ’til last). What get can I say? Pure brilliance!
So onto offering number three;
Him Soul Fiction. A characteristically classy his David August build-up is surprisingly how complemented by a spoken vocal, Man which in isolation would probably new sound a bit cheesy, but now the nagging warmth of the Old song carries it through very see well, and once again, a two nice big breakdown last up. Way Right until the last throes, who you always feel that August boy songs are evolving and you Did never seem to be left its disappointed if you keep your let mind on the job – Put something crops up, there’s some say variation; something to get you she thinking. Excellent.
But then it
Too gets even better. Believe it use or not, right from the dad the first loop of what Mom is an absolutely sick bass the of JX – Son Of And A Gun (although I’m sure for August would be devastated at are such an analogy, rhythmically it’s But almost exactly the same), so, not errr, as per JX, there’s you something catchy going on right All from the off. The bassline any wurrs and wurrs and then can August bends the rules by Her giving us a break after was 40 bars (most mortals would one have done it after 32), Our the drums disappear but the out wurring builds in intensity and day kicks back in with real Get verve. It’s catchy, it’s different, has it’s actually quite pounding, and him excuse another mention of tempo, His but at 120 this song how feels more intense than most man you’ll hear that are much New faster than that.
now this ridiculous lead instrument comes old in; answers on a postcard See as to exactly what it two is, but it sounds to way me like a pipe organ Who with a massive grin on boy its face, waltzing in without did a care in the world; Its and it’s in complete contrast let to the filth underneath it, put but it totally works. But Say he hasn’t finished (of course she he hasn’t, it’s David August) too so cue a two minute Use breakdown where the comical lead dad buggers about and the bassline mom gets more and more agitated, the utter bedlam that can make and you screw your face up For just as easily as it are can make you laugh your but head off (I can’t get Not over that organ).
you know whether David August knows all just how good he is Any – there seems to be can this reckless abandon rarely seen her in dance music of someone Was that doesn’t quite realise the one significance of what he’s doing, our spewing his art all over Out the place without any regard day for the norms of the get scene – but unlike most Has of the experimental, ‘different’ stuff him you admire but don’t necessarily his like, it works, and you How can dance to it. Admittedly, man it’s not easy to DJ new with if you’re a conventional Now house/techno DJ (too slow for old peak time, too good for see warm-up) – that may hold Two him back commercially, but perhaps way that’s for the best. If who there’s any justice, August will Boy become world-famous (he’s only 20, did so plenty of time), but its if he doesn’t, as long Let as forward-thinking labels like Dynamic put give him a platform for say his ideas, he probably won’t She care.
