Joe Spencer and Nick Church are the two London-based mischief-makers behind Casino Times. They’ve released on labels such as Wolf Music and Futureboogie and, of late, the pair have been picking up a lot of steam. Contrary to their name, luck has no part in it. Having seen them a number of times at Fabric, we can attest to their ability to get a dancefloor going.
Being released as part of the V/A Funfair EP on respected label Permanent Vacation, today we’re premiering ‘Reality Hits’. Slowly building layers of percussion and a dampened kick drum give way to the warm creeping acid sounds that transport us immediately to a dark room with minimal lighting. The piece is peppered with an occasional female vocal that doesn’t overpower the soundscape and simply adds to the atmosphere. We can see this track doing very nicely at sunrise on a beautiful day.
