inc. Lord Of The Isles Remix

Futureboogie open their 2017 account with a new release from Lizards, the Newcastle based duo otherwise known as Lee Forster and James Hadfield. After appearances on labels like Leng Records, Join Our Club and Not An Animal Records, Lizards strut their stuff across two original tracks, whilst man of the moment Lord Of the Isles weighs in with a superb remix.

The percussion driven house of “Tzatziki” kicks of the release, wrapped in warm and inviting pads and piano riffs. Shades of old school Chicago house meet sun-kissed Balearic vibes on this early morning riser, as the heavyweight bass sounds curl around the raw drum programming and illuminating keys sprinkle over the production.

On “Aloof”, the tempo is taken down somewhat, as a bass line wanders over a steady kick and otherworldly ambient sounds and hushed vocal clips lazily glide over the 4/4 arrangement. As the track unfurls, more melodic and percussive elements come into play, blossoming into a something quite epic and unique.

With a slew of releases for quality imprints like Permanent Vacation, Firecracker, Mule Musiq and ESP Institute, Neil McDonald, AKA Lord Of The Isles, serves up a deliciously chugging version of “Aloof”. Gurgling bass and marching handclaps are dowsed in dramatic synth sweeps and glacial tones, as the good Lord takes us on a monumental ride.

For their latest slice of saucer-eyed Balearic perfection, Leng Records
has looked to the North East of England for inspiration.
Lizards is a freshly minted project from Newcastle-based twosome Lee
Forster – better known as one third of Balearic house combo Last Waltz,
whose impressive releases have appeared on World Unknown, Futureboogie,
Endless Flight and Is It Balearic? – and long-time friend James Hadfield of
Nein Records’ Elizabeth Collective.
Despite writing music together on and off for the last 15 years, the duo only
made their debut this month. As first 12” singles go, their Tanni EP on Not An
Animal was something of a gem, and featured two winding, ear-pleasing
chunks of dreamy, sun-kissed Balearic disco loveliness.
Their Leng debut is just as strong. A-side “Frontier” sets the tone,
layering bubbly, psychedelic electronics, vintage synthesizer arpeggio lines
and strummed acoustic guitar riffs over a head nodding, 102 BPM drum
machine groove. By the time the jammed-out, eyes-closed electric guitars and
jaunty synthesizer melodies come in, you’ll be lost in the music.
Flipside “Coming In” stares at the sunset wistfully, effortlessly capturing the
twilight humidity associated with lazy Croatian festivals and beautiful Bali
beaches. Analogue synth lines flutter in the breeze, whilst picked guitar lines,
spinetingling chords and a druggy bassline move the action forwards at a
pleasingly loose and groovy pace. Go on, hug a stranger;

Lizards are Lee Forster (1/3 Last Waltz) and James Hadfield (the mainstay of the Elizabeth Collective). Taking over a full side, and clocking in at over 9 minutes, Anthemic understatement is a very difficult trick to pull of, but the deepness of feel here, coupled with the restraint shown in rhythm and melody, allows the track space to ebb, flow and truly get under the skin of the listener. It's one of those rare tracks that are as equally beautiful as they are danceable International Track lives up to it's name, seeing the North Eastern English producers channel the Japanese take on the Balearic sound as heard in productions by artists such as CosMes. Ironically, with his remix, Japanese based Max Essa lends a Euro Pop lilt to the track, softening the beats and adding delicate 80s digital melodies.
