After a blazing 2016, Fort Romeau and Ali Tillett’s Cin Cin label kicked off the new year with its flame burning bright. The spritely taste-making label exploded onto the scene last year with a philosophy of bringing established and new artists together on split EP format releases.
The sixth installment of label’s split 12’s series welcomes Manchester-based Elliot Lion and Dubliner David Kitt, a.k.a. New Jackson who previously turned heads with excellent releases on Permanent Vacation and Hivern Discs. With his new solo album underway, David Kitt contributed two beautifully crafted tracks to the Cin Cin 06 "New Jackson/Elliot Lion" package.
"Electric Blue" is one of the two cuts served up by the artist. The musical inspiration behind this tune derived from David Bowie's "Sound and Vision" track from the 1977 studio album "Low".
This beautiful and hypnotic reinterpretation showcases imaginative artistry to excellent effect with a deep and propulsive groove powered by layers of warm pads and cosmic synth textures. Managing to capture the mind-bending spaced-out disco vibe. this stunning version is an absolute guarantor of proper dance-floor destruction.
