On "Naughty", the debut release for Brooklyn-based Free Association, chopped soul vocals bask in the glow of Detroit-styled synths. Underpinning it all is the kind of low slung machine funk a certain Mr. Weatherall is known to gravitate towards. No surprise, considering the legend himself licensed Name In Lights' "Ur Oskunni" for his Masterpiece compilation last year. Meanwhile, across town, Studio Barnhus doyen Axel Boman continues to chart his own musical path. His rub of "Naughty" explores a warm and measured approach that has already found favor with his heroes, Dixon and Koze. While Boman's gaze is directed towards the heavens, Bushwick newcomer Cameo Culture has his sights set squarely on the floor. A distinctive bounce permeates the work of this budding house producer, who brings an undeniable disco swagger to his remix.
