The Frankfurt based pairing of Franksen and LDB are the next to grace the Lucidflow catalogue with a trio of early hours dub cuts. Soothing a revitalising tired muscles is the order of the day, rather than a severe savaging of your spinal chord. This is a set of tracks that are adept at soundtracking both a dancefloor where a crack of light is starting to signify the morning, or a headphone commute in a fine misty drizzle.
First up is ‘Parker Dub’, layering tumbling bass, percussion and dub stabs in a little chamber of echo. Overcast and low key, it is a groove through and through with little swells of intensity for those all important moments where you need a jolt.
Following this, ‘Golden Days’ lays out some classic mid-nineties progressive sounds in a modern template. Little details mean a lot here – hidden away behind the staccato melody is a little shard of snare drum that catches the ear, giving an element of funk to proceedings.
Finally, ‘Train’ rounds off the release in classic style. Taking cues from Detroit, MK sax and Saunderson strings sit against melodic dub chords and insistent bass, juxtaposing deepness and toughness.
‘Parker’ will be available on 17th June 2019 from all the usual digital stockists.
