Chicken lips Body Music
- Words: Alexis Georgopoulos
- Label: NRK
Like Morgan Geist, Trevor Jackson and Ben Cooke Dean Meredith and Andy Meecham (as Chicken Lips) have been making smart, '80s-inspired dance music that happily steers clear of anything having to do with Larry Tee. Using elements of dub, tracky Chicago house and lo-fi schoolyard hip-hop, they've recently left their best-kept-secret status for a bit more renown. On this "turntable blend," the duo gives you just what you'd expect. Namely, stripped-down, propulsive dance music that veers from the Trax-style Palace of Pleasure to the cheek of Captain Rapp to the delicate string glissandos of Kelley Polar Quartet and back again. Body Music, indeed.
