Eddie C - Migration EP (Sound of Speed Japan)

It's been more than a while since we covered a record by our hero Eddie C on these pages, if we were to cover more of his releases on here we'd seriously be writing about him on a weekly basis. As we predicted 2010 has been an impeccable year for the man - he's quickly emerged into one of the most in demand producers, remixers and djs out there; he's been booked at some of the hottest parties worldwide in recent months, constantly on the move to grace the decks at gigs in Detroit, Japan, Germany, France, England, and at the recent Sleazy Beats label parties in Melbourne and Sydney Australia. In short, Eddie's had a pretty damn successful year to say the least, and looks poised to take 2011 by storm as well.

The new one by the crown prince of dirty disco entitled 'The Migration Ep' on Japan's Sound of Speed imprint has finally hit the shops. I've been hitting refresh on my browser daily to see if it's finally in stock ever since it popped up on Juno months ago. The A1 'Migration' is a suspenseful and relentless midtempo cut with heavy slap bass and disco strings, with carefully constructed vocal breakdowns. 'Keepin' On' is a perfect slice of downtempo electronic soul sure to warm your heart with its sublime female vocal about "drifting on your love" that laces Eddie's tight drums and melodies together effortlessly. Flip it over for the uptempo disco-house loveliness of 'Give It To Me'; one to whip out prime time. Finally the moody, breezy keys create a restless and stellar groove in the EP closer, 'Days Like These'.




An all-round monumental package of a record this, seriously. Easily buy on sight material - it's 99.9% sure to sell out we reckon. Grab it here, or any other worthy retailer.
