More Dego & Kaidi due on Eglo

The 2000Black pair willl issue another 12″ through Alexander Nut and Sam Shepherd’s label later this month.

In the ever-fluctuating realm of electronic music, it seems as if we are currently in the midst of a particularly productive period for Dennis ‘Dego’ McFarlane and his trusted partner in crime Kaidi Tatham. Since appearing together on a self-titled 12″ debut for Eglo last January, their names have appeared on these pages with increasing regularity; Berceuse Heroique, Blueberry Records, Sound Signature and most recently Rush Hour have all been the welcome recipients of records featuring one or both their talents. Furthermore, a new solo album from McFarlane entitled The More Things Stay The Same,¬†featuring Tatham amongst others, is due imminently.

Having played at the most recent Eglo Records night at Corsica, Dego and Kaidi are set to return to the label with a second 12″ release due out before the end of the month. Titled simply 2, the four-track EP is described as “another heavyweight jaunt through broken house and boogie” with lead track “Black Is Key” already a Gilles Peterson favourite.¬†Judith Biffiger, aka Swiss selector and close Eglo ally Sassy J, is responsible for the fine artwork.

Eglo Records will release 2 by Dego & Kaidi on June 29.
