Some 45 heat coming out of the First Word Records camp from the dynamic duo of Fulgeance & DJ Scientist. Set to release their first effort on the label, The Soviet Tape, this one is looking and sounding like it’s going to be in many record bags. Known for his masterpiece mix, Soviet Grooves that aired on Ninja Tune’s Solid Steel in 2013, Scientist flexed his record digging skills and proved that he is one of Germany’s best record collectors while Fulgeance, an MPC virtuoso (one half of Souleance) reps France with neck snapping beats and beautiful production.
The first single off of the forthcoming project is “Moscow Nightlife”. The track has its heat seeking missles set on the digging crowd and DJs with its catchy horn samples and expertly crafted beats. We personally dig the piano riff that propels the middle of the track. Combined with the horns, this tune is an absolute winner. Eto pravda! With two other tracks aimed again at the digging crowd, expect to hear this record on repeat. “Imperialist Monsters” is a heavy tune, complete with a Latvian pop rock sample that just crushes. Filled with anti-Russian CIA documentary samples, it’s a dark jazzy trip down the rabbit hole. “Caucasian Wolf Dance” has razor sharp horn stabs and more dark piano samples, rock drum fills, and Georgian vocal flavors. This 7″ of hot lava is coming out October 27th in better record stores near you. Look out for The Soviet Tapes full length out in the near future as well. Flea Market Funk approved!
