Aww yea! This time with Kurnel MCand Isabel Drake at their side, Captain Flatcap are back with an all-new, all-encompasing, genre-busting EP – ‘Squelchedelic Sounds’. The flavours of swing-garage in ‘In My Blood’ and swing-funk in ‘Let’s Have Some Fun!’ make for two dirty DJ gems, guaranteed to get any crowd moving like puppets on strings! ‘Bong Hits From A Preacher Man’ is a creative and glitching collage of various classic soul, hip-hop, dub (and a certain smokeable something!) styles and samples! To finish, ‘Rat Race’ shows off the best of Isabel Drake’s smooth and soulful voice, accompanied by some deep and organic instrumentation and bass roars! As you’d expect the EP is tied cohesively together by parading a multitude of familiar Flatcap instruments, including the distinctive flute and trumpet parts.
“On this one Breakbeat paradise continue their seriously impressive 2017 run by employing the services of Captain Flatcap for a fantastic four track selection by the name of ‘Squelchedelic Sounds’. We kick off with the ruckus of a recording with ‘In My Blood’ alongside the infamous vocals of MC Kurnel. Next up we skip into the fidgetty funk of ‘Lets Have Some Fun’ which combines pan flutes and synths in and extended call and respond movement for a real turn up. Following this we have ‘Bong Hits From A Preacher Man’, which is a classic rework of you know what, featuring fantastic work from Isabel Drake. Isabel also features on the final track ‘Rat Race’ which takes a dubstep format with crunchy lead synths rolling out smooth melodies.”/Juno
