Review: After a brief appearance on No Regular Play's 2012 Endangered Species LP for Wolf & Lamb, John Camp debuts with the Credit Default Swap EP on Have A Killer Time. "All Ya Gotta" features the telephone filtered vocals of Mr Reed, as a popping bassline grooves down with funky synths and deeper keys, while the sidewalk swagger of "Michrodesia' sounds like a futuristic instrumental Isaac Hayes would love to serenade. "Credit Default Swap" pitches thick electric bass alongside sequenced drum machines, while a rocket launching synths climbs atmospherically, clearing the way for a (well known) midi sequenced melody to play out. "Uh Huh..." again feature Mr Reed's Romanthony-sounding vocals and it's the housiest
Review: Burning synthesiser action and pumping arpeggios dominate Walter Jones Utopian Project 12" on Justin Miller's new imprint Have A Killer Time. "Talk To Me" is a heads down jam of the disco variety as cut vocals woop between filtered melodies and balearic undertones. The kick drum of "Made In Holland" unloads some serious weight as does its sine wave bass line. "Hands In The Sand" featuring the vocal talents of Ally can be likened to a beefed up game show intro while Lauer's remix turns down the volume of the original, replacing it with new drum patterns and synthy disco pops.
Review: Regular Wolf + Lamb popsters No Regular Play make their first appearance of 2013 with this solid four track release of woozy grooves and slick vocals for Justin Miller's HAKT imprint. "Nothing Less" is a sun kissed jam replete with saucy trumpet lines and Balearic undertones, while the grouped vocals lend an almost Hot Chip lilt to the proceedings. "Night Ranger" is more melancholic, if still playful in its Casio keyboard balladry, while "Ice Cold Bottle" manages to whip up a more heated atmosphere through some choice lead synth action and a clear intention to get the dancefloor steamy. Taking a swerve for the B2, "Indigo" drops the tempo and works in some sumptuous live strings for a reflective moment at the end of the party.
