Melodica

Released: 10th September 2012 | 10 track ambient house album

No Logo is a special collaboration between Steve Miller, the super producer behind downtempo sensation Afterlife and renowned, versatile DJ and long standing Mambo, Ibiza resident Pete Gooding. following their debut on Melodica last year with a Balaeric cover of Eurythmics classic this City Never Sleeps, the duo return to the label as promised for a startlingly accomplished full length.

the album kicks off with the aptly titled 'Darkstar,' brooding warm atmospherics and a punchy breakbeat ride the track until the breakdown, with plenty of synth accents to keep interest high. Party Animal is a whole different beast. Latin patterns and piano chops tuck in below a sumptuous vocal from Marion Benoist.

'Easy'is very much that, reminiscent of hazy 90's Balaerica, Cafe Del Mar beach sessions and plenty of chill-time. This is followed swiftly by the title track of the debut single, the cover of 'This City Never Sleeps' in all its silken glory.

We're taken down a notch further with the the curiously named 'Acid Bath.' There's nothing sadistic going on here though, no sir. It's arguably the most chilled recording on the album with a tasty little organ riff and one hell of a sax solo!

'Mindset' kicks in full pelt with its propulsive jazzy breaks, huge arcs of warm bass and bagfuls of soul. this ones special. Track seven on the album, titled 'How Many More Years,' pulls in the talent of Chester Burnett on songwriting duties. Psuedo-tribal rhythms and phyche rock textures conjure strange images in this enigmatic piece.

'The Game' pushes forward with a similar groove, but with the backbone of House music and the synthetic elements of nu-disco to create a bumping textured little number. 'FHT' follows in fine style with a classic 90's string intro and punchy house kick. the track builds with sax licks, deep, slinky bass dynamic and some nostalgic melodic touches that bring the track out of it's shell as it progresses.

Finally, 'Is Anybody Out There' provides touching closure, the last breath of a fine, fine album. The emotive strings cradle a stunning vocal and breathe air and life into the whizzing synthetic accents that frequent the song. For digital buyers, you'll gain an ambient version of the closing piece.

The album is available in CD and digitally.
