FINA005 - Morning Factory - 'Sultans of Swing EP' (edits)
Cosmic Dutch space cadets Morning Factory step up for FINA 005 with a slow motion rhythm and tone EP. Having previously appeared for Rotterdam’s Clone Records and brothers from another mother 2020 Vision, the guys have been busy in the windmill whittling a perfect autumn release.
'Sultans of Swing EP' doesn’t quite shadow Dire Straits but it certainly delivers. The hypnotic title track features future-proof basslines, layered with an enigmatic drowning echo-led synth, while A2’s ‘Lady’ provides an alternative finish to the wax; utilising a soul facing 90’s r&b vocal hook that effortlessly break through the shuffling punchy bass.
There’s no Edam to be found on the reverse either as mysterious edits man Cottam reworks ‘Sultans of Swing’ into a mid-tempo cosmic number. The elusive producer found three of his tracks in Phonica’s Top 50 tracks in 2009. We think we made the right choice.
