FBD012 - Jan Tenner F.N.K EP
Near the Harbour of Hamburg, Pedestrians look up to the window of Jan Tenner's Appartment building as the bassdrum rips through the walls. Jan Tenner is at work. He has put down the headphones and like us all turns up the volume...
Hamburg based newcomer Jan Tenner dishes upsome lusciously deep chunky cuboid house for Fullbarr's latest outing. Consciousness presents us with a tight rhythmic percussive arrangement which is carried along on a bed of warm piano chords, and marrys in with some warped spoken word, bringing some strong overall sophisticated chicago flavours. great for warming up.
So strong ups the momentum a touch with a surging electronic synth pattern making up the leading hook. cushioned by a distant sad string pad and a soulful, this track captures an immense amount of emotion, and if used correctly, could mark a really special moment in a set.
Funk plunges even deeper, starting off with a nice low-end buzz which slowely evolve into some solemn organ chords, backed by a warped "get the fuck". As the track progresses, the leading hook is eventually overpowered by a high-pitched, yet soft drone of a siren, which brings the track to its climax. The drop is met by a substantially wide bass melody which provides that extra needed groove. Mystical.
Brendon Moeller's take on Funk is far more focussed on the dancefloor.. He provides a hypnotic shuffly swing-based percussion that rolls along nicely over the top of deep dubby chords. During the break, Moeller inserts plenty of signature glitchiness. perfect wonky early morning basement vibes. Shinedoe -Consiousness paradice rmx and original, will play it... Iron Curtis - 'hey guys, thanks for this!
