Kon & The Gang -Timeless /Closer12″ Sampler

Kon & The Gang 12 Sampler
Released on 12″ vinyl July 8th 2016.
Opening track ‘Timeless’ could hardly be more aptly named. Sublime, smokey piano touches on the intro give way to an uplifting, languid disco track, jammed full of sunshine. Catchy vocal snippets, rock solid bass and guitar licks build up the groove beautifully alongside Kon’s trademark staccato, squelchy synth chord stabs.

On the flip-side Truccy (better known as Compost’s Rainer Trüby and Corrado Bucci) present ‘Closer’, another sun-drenched groove with definite Balearic touches. Jazzy chords and touching vocals (performed by the duo themselves with assistance from Nicolas “Michael Ellis” Rogoll) lend the track a distinctly ‘live’ feel. Boston producer and mix engineer Caserta closes out proceedings with his remix of friend and musical collaborator Kon’s ‘Timeless’. Highlighting piano loops and synth stabs from the original version, his rework moves the track seamlessly into Deep House territory, with smoothly rolling percussion and a hypnotic arrangement. A delicious taste of what’s to come from ‘Kon & Gang’, this limited 12″ is surely going to be essential listening this summer.
