‘The Present’ is one of two new cuts from DEEP TENOR CITY the production duo comprised of DAN STILLIT and OLI SAVILL. They won loads of friends last year with their ultra percussive ‘Oba’ which, especially in its Opolopo remix was a real floor filler.
‘The Present’ offers more of the same exotic dance flavours –fuelled by insistent yet gentle percussive work and Herbie Mann style flute. The cut is a collaboration with Bronx-based Tribal Winds main man, Antonio Ocasio. and features spoken word from NYC’s Ricoh Scott and London’s Maria-Julia Nunez. To keep the feet moving and the heads nodding there’s additional percussion from Jose Claussell.
The team’s other new tune is the equally infectious, loping bass-fired ‘Fireheart and like ‘The Present’ is out right now on bbe Records!
