Audit - Back to Normal EP by Homebreakin Records


These six tracks make up another exceptional and distinctive release from Auditand Homebreakin' Records. Stay tuned for more to come and funkier things to follow. A couple of remixes round out the package, courtesy of Homebreakin' extended family members Wax Romeo and Max Ulis. Max Ulis tackles 'Weirdo Beat,' raising the tempo as well as the proverbial roof with a somewhat house-fueled mix that builds with clanky percussion and excited, rhythmic vocal drops. Phased out synth pads and a crunchy bass line add to the late night sonic stew. Fellow Calgary-based DJ/producer Wax Romeo is up next, enhancing 'Sunny Winter' with a kinetic breakbeat and a repetitive, lilting female vocal line. It's a classy rework, using the layered Juno-60 arpeggiations and a solid low end for a full, rounded-out sound.Audit has been making things happen for over ten years, with DJ-proven past releases on the likes of East Recordings, Punchout!, and Homebreakin'. His sound combines elements of breakbeat, downtempo, and the funkier 'boogie' styles epitomized by like-minded friends All Good Funk Alliance and Neighbour. This latest release leads with 'Back To Normal,' a dubbed out slow motion crawl of a track incorporating a reggae skank, funky flute, and captured late-night radio transmissions. It's a new direction for Audit, with the title inspired by his need to 'get back to normal' after a slew of summer festival DJ gigs. 'Weirdo Beat' follows, with its chunky, loose rhythm and spaced-out atmosphere recalling the best moments of Sa-Ra and Mo' Wax. Next, Audit collaborates with partner-in-arms Watson on 'Sneek,' a deliciously slinky and squelchy exercise that does sound like a careful tip-toe through George Clinton's mothership. Very sneaky, indeed. Audit gets even moodier for his final track, 'Sunny Winter,' which is based around an endlessly tweaked Juno-60 arpeggiation over a heavy, loping beat. Audit recalls twisting the Juno-60 for hours on end at high volume, causing his neighbors to respond by blasting country music in his direction. Audit's punishment is his listeners' reward, as 'Sunny Winter' turns out to be an evocative, musical track touching on unexplored genres.Canada's funk contingent at Homebreakin' Records are pleased to unleash the latest effort from Calgarian DJ/producer Audit, titled the Back To Normal EP. Made up of four new tracks and a couple of hot shot remixes, the Back To Normal EP is anything but, instead comprised of unique and off-kilter dance floor grooves primed to send the party into the stratosphere.

Our boys Smalltown DJs are back at it with their newest tune "Blow", an infectious bass wobbly Moombahton banger which samples the classic funky break "Black Machine". On the remix tip we have Sabo (Moombahton Massive) & Paul Devro (Mad Decent) who go the opposite direction and flip the original into a Tribal Percussive house stomper, while the Dub House remix strips down the percussion and horns, and adds a deep dubby bass with some dusted out horn stabs. The Original is getting massive support from Toddla T who premiered it on his BBC 1 show a few months ago, Sinden from Kiss FM, Nadastrom, Tittsworth, J*Star, Willy Joy, and more. While the remix is getting further support from DJs like Master Kev, Astronomar, Nickodemus, Jort Veneestra of DownPitch Records, Professor Angel Dust, Melo, Sandro Bianchi, and Smutlee. GO BUY IT RIGHT THIS VERY INSTANT!
