Out the fertile musical grounds of Amsterdam comes this instrumental 6-song EP by producer Jay.Soul (prev. credits include Sole Profit, Corey, NineFifty, remixes Michael Franti, The Proov and Nas' Made U Look) and his elusive twin brother Mr.Windmill. Although these Dutch siblings have secretly been cooking up tasty treats together in their treehouse studio for years, The Perculationn EP marks their first official release as a duo.
What connects the 6 diverse tracks on this record are the seriously funky, beat-heavy grooves, clever arrangements and overall organic sound. Other than that, Mr.Windmill & Jay.Soul don't confine themselves to any particular style or genre. They move comfortably from the broken vibes of Hugo Hovenkampp and TheWayThatt, via sexy 4-to-the-floor with a hip-hop feel on Peterr Boeve (featured in an upcoming compilation on 08Bar Records (Rushhour) and jazzy house on Nasty Beauty, to the dirty synthbass driven breakbeat of Hoppa Kayy!, and all the way down to the laidback, African percussion-laden dillafunk displayed in Have You Everr?.
Recommended listening for fans of Mark De Clive-Lowe, Spinna, Bugz, Jay Dee/Dilla, Masters At Work, Osunlade, Mitsu, Kid Sublime, Rednose, Domu, Jazzanova, etc.
Composed, played, arranged, mixed & produced by Mr.Windmill & Jay.Soul for It Won't Stop Productions, Amsterdam
