Bomb The Bass
Wandering Star EP
29th March 2013
(The Third Mind Remix)
(Ken Hayakawa Remix)
(Dawn Horse Remix)
With big hitters such as ‘Beat Dis’, Bomb The Bass helped mould late 1980s acid house. Their linchpin, Tim Simenon, has led the group through a number of different incarnations, painting vivid pictures of modern culture on the albums ‘Clear’, ‘Unknown Territory’ and ‘Into The Dragon’.
More recently Bomb The Bass have settled as a duo, vocalist Paul Conboy providing lyrical complements to Simenon’s continually inventive productions. The duo have made arguably the best work under the moniker, with guests from Mark Lanegan to Fujiya & Miyagi (‘Future Chaos’), then a successful co-production with Gui Boratto (‘Back To Light’).
Simenon and Conboy return in 2013 with new single ‘Wandering Star’ and album ‘In The Sun’, both on Simenon’s new imprint O*Solo Recordings, and will take their vividly inventive electro on tour.
‘Wandering Star’ is a peek at new Bomb The Bass album ‘In The Sun’. It is an affirmative, dub-laden song with a captivating vocal. In a generous remix package, Third Mind slice the vocals with textures that appear hung on a piece of string. Ken Hayakawa uses a hypnotic four-part loop, while Swede:art slows things right down. Finally Dawn Horse evokes swirling night time mist. Also included on the EP is another brand new track, ‘Needy Creature’. The ‘Wandering Star’ video was directed by Eni Brandner.
