The California dance alchemists ready their housiest effort yet.
We’ve come to expect the unexpected from the Los Angeles/San Francisco duo of Matrixxman and Earthman. From the crunk-heavy UKG of their ‘Make U Understand/Reset’ single to their production of Le1f’s warped trunk-rattler ‘Wut’, 5kinandbone5 are agnostic to genre as long as it shakes asses.
With that in mind comes Sex Lies & Videochat EP, out December 17 on Discobelle Records. A non-stop collection of five house tracks, with inflections ranging from voguish ballroom (‘Black Matter’) to electro-funk (‘Forest Nymphs’) to straight-up hypercharged (‘Niggaz Is Machines’), the EP promises to get hearts racing.
Stream the EP below; the cover art and tracklist follow. 5kinandbone5 co-produced ‘Bong Hits’ with Sinden for comedy rap trio Three Loco, while Matrixxman recently collaborated with Dick Van Dick on a couple of ballroom tracks.
