On Uncanny Valley’s catalogue number 18 we finally welcome back Credit 00 who is a man in charge of a decent collection of those dusty machines we all love. After the ice cold “The Living Room Life EP” from 2012, his brand new record “Ice Cream” is easy to fall in love with. Packed with tunes to suit various moods in life, it will be a faithful companion in dark basements or lonesome hours.
“Ice Cream” starts deliciously with its sleazy sample choice. With the distinctive drum work it builds up to a true Chicago-inspired dance floor banger.
“Round n Round” hits hard with a harsh kick and cowbell action before it shows off slightly melancholic lead synths and a subtle but effective bass line and puts the emphasis on the fact that things go round and round. Life’s a dizzy affair.
“East Of Nowhere” with THAT bass line-sound is Credit 00 to the core. And with spooky synths he puts you to an east of nowhere-place where you will lose yourself in manic trance-like dancing.
The record ends with “Red Wine”, a slightly different electronic love song sung by Credit 00.
