With a natural inclination for a touch of jazz and soul, it came as no surprise to see the Peckham-based, Rhythm Section and Church affiliated groove kings Chaos In The CBD matched up with soul four-piece Sorceress. The brothers (or twins as some rumours suggest) have applied their signature deep-textured and melody-rich sound to a lovely number from the New Zealand outfit.
The duo inject a warm earthiness in their interpretation of ‘Teacups’ (taken from the band’s 2014 Dose LP), building it up from basic elements of a swung percussive backline of drums, an understated bass line and sustained aqueous keys on top. Syncopated rhythms and a much-emphasized first beat of each bar, breathe a deep afro-house number. Yet the track matures into much more through its seductive electric guitar chord riff as well as liberally-imbued vocal sample morsels and sweet scatterings of saxophone. Lose yourself a thousand times over in this one.
