Parting the Unknown

Posted on the 24 May 2011 by Pelski
Parting the UnknownCanadian Eddie C has been turning a lot of heads lately with his deep and disco house records. Sure enough his debut album, released on Endless Flight, has arrived and it’s filled to the brim with the smooth, tinkling good stuff. Soulful vocal samples and nods to 70s and 80s boogie are a plenty. Highlights on Parts Unknown come in the form of the uplifting funk of ‘Love Journey’, the groove-laden ‘Deepa’  - and ‘Your Love’ even features some of Eddie C’s own vocal work.
He’s handing out We Need We from the album as a free a download, a slice of shimmering cosmic disco, fitted with some sweet as pie female vocals, at once cute and off-kilter. Typical of an Eddie C production, the whole thing glimmers in an offbeat charm:

The next one is from a year back, and has since achieved semi-classic status. A piece of disco wierdery pieced together from fragments of J Dilla’s ‘Made in Detroit’. The fractured funk, is washed over with filters and a jumpy stop-and-start rhythm. Vocal snippets of yelps, gulps and half-words are worked into a funky, stuttery patchwork of disco soul:

When it comes to house music, it’s always hard to resist a piano. Trends come and go, but piano house will be with us forever. This is another funky number, with a pitter-patter of congas laid beneath a mighty great jazzy piano line. It comes in wav form so prepare for a whopping great 50MB file:
