Mason – Runaway – Original Mix
Mason – Let’s Get Ferretic – Original Mix
Here’s another musical departure for Dutch duo, Mason. Proving once again that they can turn their hands to anything, here comes a heavy disco rub with a sampled hook catchier than an outbreak of E.coli in a hot kitchen.
Taking slices of Eruption’s cover of the classic Del Shannon sixties song, ‘Runaway’, Mason modernize and bastardize at will. Iason and Coen chop up the original hooks and bind it to a groove that will have heads nodding, creating havoc with the funkier dance floors for the rest of the summer.
In typical Animal Language style, the rodent themed ‘flipside’ ‘Lets Get Ferretic’ is in complete contrast. With its jacking beats and weird descending and ascending lead lines it’s like the mentally disturbed younger brother of ‘Runaway’.
Of course this wouldnt be an Animal Language release without the traditional ‘Refurb’, taking the lead track in an utterly different non-dance floor direction. This time around Mason head into the ganja smoke-filled territory of dub reggae with a Lee Scratch Perry influenced interpretation. Random, but effective!
