After breaking radio silence with the ace ‘Night Theatre Volume One’, Linkwood pushes a super plush Detroit electrofunk on Firecracker
With classic Cybotron/Juan Atkins and Mr. De in mind, the Edinburgh don sparks up the vocoder to introduce a full fat electrofunk swing flared with G-Funk chords and riffs on the A-side’s ‘Fresh Gildans’, giving the new skool electronauts a classic history lesson in the process.
On the B-side he switches to a sort of Juan-styled dub techno abstraction with the crispy, deep-fried flow of ‘Solar Panel’, before slipping into the silky but piquant, Afro-cubed hustle of ‘Another Late Night’ for a more intimate twist of modular tweaks and scissoring syncopation.
