Let It Happen

A 4 track nu-disco ep (22m 55s) — released February 18th 2013 on Faze Action Records

Rudy's Midnight Machine offer up their latest release on FAR with special guest Zeke Manyika featured on vocal duties. For those that remember, Zeke's Afro inflected chants featured on Faze Action's Kariba and he subsequently toured with the Faze Action live show across the globe culminating with a legendary performance at Glastonbury. Here he has teamed up with the other half of Faze Action, namely cello playing bassist and string arranger, Robin Lee, to deliver a slice of gritty boogie styled funk with stuttering percussive vocals, elasticated bass, cutting guitars not to mention an earthy slap bass break down that harks back to the golden age of jazz funk with added modern edge.

"Work It", manages to take the sound of eighties house music and fuse it, ingeniously, with a modern stripped out deep house sound. With an impossibly hooky analogue bass and a hint of quirky vocals, this track wants you to work it out in a sweaty darkened basement at 4 in the morning.

The analogue elation continues with "Turn Me On" that combines simple melodic lines and vocodered vocals wrapped up in a track that undulates between a heavy bass groove and a bridge designed to lift you up before throwing you back down onto the floor. A Faze Action Edit of the title track that features more of the bass break wraps up this third outing for Rudy's Midnight Machine on the FAR imprint.
