Lasertom & The Blast Crew - Two Sides EP
Next up on the good ship Bear is a brand new artist. One we think is headed onto big things. We are pretty lucky to be putting out his first single to be honest. Lasertom and his Blast Crew are from sunny Dublin. They make laid-back, slo-mo disco with real instruments (bass, guitar, brass) in a style which just oozes quality.
Their debut three tracker EP has a theme running through it… yup, its all about "sides". First up is a riff you may well know from Trevor Horn and FGTH. They take ithe "tribe" groove slow it down and strip the groove back. Using just the riff from the famous 80's monster hit they cunningly carve out "Two Sides" as their sultry opener.
Next up "By My Side" enlists the help of the handily associated brass section. Shuffling grooves, stabby horns and muted picked guitar are the order of the day. It's a perfect one for those early DJ-set appetizing sections.
To round things off we tone it down even further with the beautiful "By My Side". Subtle tones, lazy keys and a smouldering groove. When the keys kick in during the last minute it's a glorius and sublime treat. Stay tuned for more sides.
