Soul Mekanik Eighty-One
- Words: Rob Geary
- Label: Rip
Mechanics Danny Spencer and Kelvin Andrews perform a complete overhaul of house on Eighty-One, tearing down the form to its barest 4/4 essentials and building a completely new vehicle ready to jack your body. Though they work from a full-flavor tech-house frame, a given tune is as likely to be laced with classic diva vox as vocodered French, as likely to be flooded with disco guitar scratch as electro gurgles, as likely to be rife with acid squiggles as iconic hi-hats. Eighty-One doesn't reinvent the house wheel, but it does slap on a shiny new paint job and some spinning rims.
