Fonck EP

A 4 track ambient techno ep (22m 8s) — released November 1st 2010 on Keep Up!
Keep Up! Records unveils brand new signing Bestboygrip complete with his debut EP Fonck. Those with their ears to the ground will be aware that the Germany-based Bestboy is well-known within the drum n bass world under a different moniker. But this is the Bestboy cutting loose for a minute and kicking out some modern disco jams with one foot in the past and the other in the future. This is the sound of an 80s Boogie, Synthesizer, Library Music and B-Movie obsessive. Fonck is the slow-paced opener with heavy-hitting synth drums but reflective keyboard narrative. One of Keep Up! Records' favourite producers Architeq provides a dubby, spacey remix sounding like something Luke Vibert might have included on his Nuggets Library compilations. On the flipside the pace quickens with the flexible bassline but tight groove of Copyright. The EP closes with the house-tinged Cross My Mind, which builds on the strong melody-lead theme of the other tracks even further with the aid of catchy synth lead and vocal hooks. The Fonck EP sits comfortably next to artists such as Faze Action, LCD Soundsystem and Ilija Rudman. Just the way Keep Up! likes its modern disco. Bestboygrip is aiming to expand his sound even further, this time onto the stage with a full live band. Keep an eye out for Roland and his crack team of musicians visiting your town.
