Ecstatic and moody at once, ‘South Bank’ is a piece of rough, bouncing electronic beauty that’ll make you feel like you’re a slave to the rhythm like in the old days, only better! Come down with ‘Testing Ground’ – a peaceful synth-jam – after which Jenkinson gets you in the piano-breakbeat mood with ‘Nigel Ringtone’; you’d be forgiven to think it’s a co-production with A Guy Called Gerald.
‘Refresher’ opens the flipside to remind us of Ceephax’s love for ghetto-bass. His version of the dirty genre is brought to life with melodies that seem to flow out of a local pub in Drexciya’s Bubble Metropolis. With the final track, Ceephax drops us back into the future with ‘Russia’ a Krafwerkian dancefloor killer. What a way to go… Drop everything else for one of the strongest Ceephax releases to date!
