My Favorite Robot Records introduce a new act to their eclectic roster in the form of German duo Iftah Gabbai and Olaf Hilgenfeld aka Skinnerbox. With their three track “Sawtooth Blues” EP, the duo serve up a smattering of exciting new cuts and rightly call themselves an “avant-jazz opus wrapped in a disco suitcase.”
Before now the pair has released in both LP and single format on Doxa Records, BPitch Control and Treat Your DJ Right, and their arty, synth heavy sound makes perfect sense on the MFRR label.
Here, we feature the EP’s title track ‘Sawtooth Blues,’ opening things up in gloopy style, with bendy, downbeat bass synths off set by more colourful pads up top. It’s an undulating, warm and comforting tune with a left of centre sense of melody that really resonates.
Musical and emotive yet beat driven and floor filling, this EP is another fine addition to the My Favorite Robot Records cannon and a great introduction to Skinnerbox.
Sawtooth Blues EP is available 27 April 2015 on My Favorite Robot Records
