Review: In Flagranti/Rory Phillips/G & S – Electric Fling
Artist: In Flagranti/Rory Phillips/G & S
Title: Electric Fling
Genre: Disco/Nu Disco/Re-Edits
Buy From: Juno Download
Despite plugging away at filthy disco workouts for years, it took the reissue of “Business Acumen” on Kitsune to really put In Flagranti in the hearts of the club going public. Not that the Brooklyn based duo will complain as since then, they’ve been called upon to create a slew of remixes, complemented by a superlative album and a continual pilfering of obscure discoteria with the Sounds Superb edit series. They end a superlative year with Electric Fling, the aural result of a spontaneous jam session between the duo and some of their London based kindred spirits in G & S and Rory Phillips and presented in the requisite 70s porn imagery.
Surprisingly In Flagranti’s effort, “Erector Set”, is probably the least impressive of the three track EP, being a somewhat understated slow burner. “Portable Control” by G & S (aka ex Nightmover Matt Waites and Say Yes! resident Nadia Ksaiba) functions at a similar tempo, but certainly retains the interest of your ears with synth washes and cowbell aplenty.
Rory Phillips contributes the standout track here with “Solar Breakfast”, his first original production, which is a beast of a track and reminiscent of In Flagranti at their finest. After a year of awesome remixes of The Units, Jackpot and The xx, this track certainly marks Phillips out as one to watch.
