Longtime Bedrock artist, Randall Jones, has been busy making music with Ariaano, the legend behind 16 Bit Lolitas and Cubicolor. The results have been a stream of killer releases on Little Helpers, Sudbeat and a host of other top labels. Now, as they look to end 2022 in style, the pair brings some of their best work yet to Bedrock Records, with the two-track Thunderbird EP.
First up, Thunderbird is a masterful techno workout. A swollen bass fuelled kick drum and metronomic, metallic high hats set the relentless pace before a breakdown that takes the dance floor to another plateau. A perfect 2 am roof raiser.
On the b-side we find the yin to Thunderbird’s yang in Chrome Tips – a deep, building number that eschews instant gratification in favour of ambiance and depth; a slow burner that transforms into a snarling, cantering beast.
