Ridin’ around we griddin’ it
Girl Unit is back !! Club Rez a 2xLP is out now on Night Slugs. After putting out what was arguably one of the tippity top tracks of 2010 with his club smasher ‘Wut’ expectations are high, but as he says in this interview with cluster mag “I could’ve done a follow up with a similar thing, but I really didn’t want to try and outdo it.” Even though we arent getting a Wut 2.0 with Club Rez it definitely raises the bar even higher and fleshes out one of the world’s most interesting producers in the form of 6 solid bangers on all white vinyl.
With that said the standouts for me are ‘Ensemble’ best described by the man himself ”it’s all done on a LINN drum – the old Prince drum – with a shit ton of effects on it, but at the same time I wanted to show a grimier, darker side of it”. Seriously nasty prince club vibes serenaded by a synthladen miami beach breakdown. Next, If theres anything that comes close to a Wut 2.o its ‘Club Rez’. Leading with a tron style synth buildup which drops into a no frills bassline it keeps you grooving while still wanting more, it might leave a lil to be desired but it gets better with time. Finally, theres ‘Double Take’ which is drenched in hyphy bloops and inspired by drum programming from the bay area (YEE!). Listen to the end of the the track to get a preview of what Girl Unit calls ‘Double Take 2′ on course to be a for sure banger !!
