A Heads Excursion

A 2 track broken beat single (10m 50s) — released November 30th 2018 on Excursions

Our final Excursion of 2018 is one for the 'heads'. NameBrandSound provide us with two very different versions of one dancefloor destroying bruk riddim - 'A Heads Excursion'.

NameBrandSound is IG Culture and Alex Phountzi. They've been releasing music as a duo since 2014, from their debut EP on Technicolor/NinjaTune, to releases on their own Arena Yard imprint, and remixes for the likes of Blue Lab Beats, Neue Grafik and Miraa May.

The duo entered the foray as integral players in the West London broken beat scene; their individual careers dating back to the nineties and working extensively on projects such as New Sector Movements (IG Culture) and Bugz In The Attic (Alex Phountzi), amongst numerous others. Heavily associated with the infamous CoOp club nights at London's Plastic People, this year saw the launch of their own 'CoOp Presents' record label, which aims to showcase new talent in the broken beat scene and beyond, drawing in musical influences far and wide, from jungle to jazz, dancehall to soul.

'Shrunken Heads' flips an eighties classic, containing one of the biggest basslines ever laid to wax that'll be instantly recognisable to everyone and their mum. This is a sure-shot floorfiller - you know, the kind that appears twice in a lifetime… On the flip, 'BeBop' takes the same riddim and transposes the vibe to a slinkier affair, complete with jazzy stabs and soulful vocal punches - a solid five minute roller. Two grooves that are guaranteed to never leave your record bag.
