Embassy Of Joy "Addiction" ENDLESS
Out 12th January, 2015. Everywhere.
Including remixes by Johannes Brecht and Patlac.
An act birthed from the island outreaches of Maui, the Hawaiian pairing of DJ/producer Marasco and vocalist Gretchen Rhodes were always going to craft something slightly left of dancefloor centre. While the production arm of the duo comes from a more conventional house and techno background, singer Rhodes has recorded and performed with iconic musical figures such Mick Fleetwood and Steven Tyler.
Their creation for Luca Bacchetti’s ENDLESS imprint sees the duo deliver ‘Addiction’ a dubby offering, tinted in dusty atmospheric tones and a certain haunting, tension-filled dynamic thanks to Rhodes haunting vocals that masterfully switch between singing, spoken word and breathy whisper over the course of the seven minute cut.
