Hawke: Heatstroke Label: Six Degrees & Sunburn
I’ve been so anticipating the release of this record – and I’m SO loving it. This is full of the funky electro/acid/tweaky/breaks/house that has characterized the sound of SF’s Sunburn Records. Gavin Hardkiss is a good friend of mine. As the youngest of the Hardkiss brothers, Gavin is a talented musician and DJ like his brothers. I love all of the tracks on this CD. Best tracks: 1,2,3,5,6
1. Thumpin beats w/ background congas, beautifully reverberating glass tones
2. Crackly dubby trippy electro; changes organically; great guitar thrown in middle
3. Awesome catchy progressive electro-infused house anthem – party people gonna change the world!
4. Narrative rap about ravers set to grindin’ booty acid-y electro-breaks
5. Grindin’ bass, cut-up beats, tweaky acid-y loops, wild percussion, scratchy noise, breaks, all mashed into what I think is Gavin’s signature as a DJ & a producer
6. My pal Adnan contributes samba energy (& vocals) on this slammin’ house tune
7. Uplifting synth loops and catchy trumpet melodies – wonderful world-y trance
8. Grindin’ bassline with tribaly beat and swishy synth melodies
9. Insistent bass beat, space-y vocals by Adamsmasher, loopy synths – pretty cool
10. Short tinkly interlude, some ocean sounds (goes into 11)
11. Gentle guitar strumming, grindin’ bassline, dramatic synths & piano
