Track Of The Day: Soccer96 - 'Megadrive Lamborghini'

I first heard this superb duo a couple of years back when they released their self-titled debut album, and now they emerge with their second full-length effort. Made up of drummer Betamax and analogue synth wizard Danalogue, and as well as operating as Soccer96, the two of them also make up two thirds of Mercury Prize-nominated trio The Comet Is Coming. Released on Slowfoot Records, the superb 'As Above So Below' defies categorisation, mashing up techno, hip hop, funk, house and jazz to create a stratospheric melting pot of sound. Some tracks were composed and created at warehouse parties, while others were discovered on tapes from all-night recording sessions that the duo forgot even happened. One of my favourite albums of the year. From it comes this wonderful helping of blissed-out, glitchy stargazing hip hop where percussion clatters and synth notes glare like the rays of a million suns.

'As Above So Below' is available now on CD, digital and vinyl.
