EARTHBOOGIE’S ‘Human Call’ Album. On Leng Records 11th May…

Pioneering British duo Izaak Gray & Nicola Robinson’s musical vision is best summed up by their selfproclaimed dedication to all things intergalactic, cosmic, tribal and terrestrial. Their music is drawn from inspiring sounds from across the world; African, Latin and Eastern sounds are present in all their productions, which have sprouted from collaborations with singers such as Nina Miranda, and Angelique Kidjo. With clear parallels between the Afro-cosmic work of Italian pioneers Daniele Baldelli and Beppe Loda, rock guitars, disco riffs, vintage synthesizers and heavy African drum rhythms are all thrown in the melting pot.

Their debut Mr Mystery EP came out on Leng Records in 2017 followed by their Silken Moon single March 2018 with an animated music video directed by Sean Gorham and illustrated by James Wilson. For Record Store Day April 2018 Earthboogie released an exclusive remix 12 with The Mushrooms Project on Leng Records.

11th May 2018 is their debut album release on Leng Records. Their LP, named Human Call isa vibrant eight-track missive that fixes the sticky tropical cheeriness of African and South American dance music be it Afro-disco, Afro-funk or samba with a wide range of complimentary sounds, styles and influences, from spacey analogue electronics, sun-kissed Balearica and hazy West Coast jazz-rock, to chunky dub disco, snappy retro-futurist house and bouncy, dub-fuelled club workouts. The album has special remixes from Ali Kuru, Felix Dickinson, Pete Herbert & Gerd Janson.

Premiere : Silken Moon by EARTHBOOGIE | Leng | 16|03|18

It was May 2017 when Earthboogie’s debut release dropped on Leng. The soundsystem-loving East London duo rightly won praise for a fine EP that brilliantly joined the dots between all things intergalactic, terrestrial and tribal.

Having spent the last ten months recording their adventures, Izaak Gray and Nicola Robinson return with “Silken Moon”, the first single from their forthcoming debut album, Human Call.

In typical fashion, “Silken Moon” cannily combines musical elements from a myriad of styles – most notably Afro-disco, samba and mid-tempo Chicago house – to create a humid hybrid that defies easy categorization. There are bouncy organ riffs, undulating acid lines, clipped Afro-funk guitars, tons of tropical percussion and the chanted, carnival-friendly vocalizations of guest singer Nina Miranda.

The release comes backed with remixes from two members of the extended Leng family: long-serving producer Felix Dickinson and Turkish rising star Ali Kuru. Dickinson sticks close to the original of “Silken Moon” with a mix built around gently jacking machine drums and Earthboogie’s sweaty guitar licks while Kuru takes “Human Call” in an altogether more cosmic direction. Pushing the track’s psychedelic TB-303 lines and tropical textures to the fore whilst adding his own mind-altering electronics – most notably a fat new synth bassline – Kuru cleverly re-casts the track as a pulsating, late night throb-job.
