Coming Soon - Grizzlehand on Speak Recordings
Its Disco Dub (excerpt)
I'm a Hans Dansa (excerpt)
Release Date: May 19th
As 2/3rds of the Chicken Lips trio, Stevie Kotey and Dean Meredith have solidified their place as nu-disco pioneers and post-disco champions. The duo reunites to form Grizzlehand and deliver a killer double A-sided gem, chocked-full-oh disco goodness.
It’s Disco Dub informs us of what’s to follow in the title itself. The track opens with a killer one-and-two step drum groove, timbale solo and a baseline that will surely appease the early hip-hop ghosts of Crotona Park. The groove change includes a more traditional disco base lick, guitar rhythm and additional synth lines.
I’m a Hans Dansa takes a mid-tempo approach with a moody guitar melody and single note guitar arpeggio. Like all good things disco, the track is laced with plenty of percussion, effects and dance-floor friendliness.
Both tracks are reminiscent of the days Konk ruled the streets of New York and are homerun hitters for fans of Chicken Lips, Lindstrom, Prins Thomas and Idjuts Boys.
