There's just the one mix, but that's enough for Danny Slade...
Falseface’s latest single is a bit darker than his previous releases, but is still jam-packed with hooks and quality production values.
Just Too Loud starts with a dirty percussive loop, with a swung drum pattern and electro sounds that are joined by a solid kickdrum and a snare roll. That takes you into the main body of the track, which has a funky backbeat, brass stabs and random vocal samples, and then a main vocal sample which is pretty tripped out and fits perfectly with the ever-so-slightly sinister feel. This tune is built for late-night plays when everyone is locked into the groove: it's deeper and darker than his earlier releases and represents a more experimental vibe - and one that has moved with the musical times, where anthemic funky house has given way to a deeper, more visceral sound.
Whether you're a Falseface fan already or new to his sound, you're in for a treat here, because this tune stands out from the pack and neatly avoids musical cliches. I for one will be loading it straight on my memory stick.
