When it comes to the classy side of dance music, UK producers Felon are guilty as charged. After making waves with debut hit “Isla,” the trio shows their diversity on new EP, The Source, expertly stacking timeless soul vocals, jacking baselines and modern house bump as only true professionals can. Summery single “Bones” features the yearning melodies of Andre Espeut over tropical riffs and chunky horns, while the cascading drums of “Tusks” and rubbery, ultra-funky baseline of “Jerk” show off Felon’s deft touch with late-night vibes. Get chic to this.
Felon return to Fool’s Gold with the jacking new single “Tusks,” taken from their upcoming EP, The Source, out this fall. “Tusks” updates acid grooves for a new generation, sprinkled with the captivatingly cut-up vocals this house trio is known for. Do what the song says and lose control, baby.
Felon is the London house trio of Archie, George and James. After their smash single “Isla” took over the planet, Fool’s Gold enlisted these producers to lend their soulful, feel good touch to Rome Fortune’s “Dance” (featured on the recent Night Shift compilation). Immediately afterwards, we were pleasantly surprised to find “Bones” in our inboxes, melding Felon’s signature, Ibiza-ready smoothness with muscular horns and a heavy-duty bass riff. It’s not your everyday jam, and definitely not what you might expect from Fool’s Gold… which kinda makes it the perfect tune for us to release! Wait for the next available sunset and turn this one waaay up. Listen to “Bones” now.
