Having grabbed people’s attention with their debut, beautifully haunting, incredibly infectious, vocalized “Never Sleeping” – the opening track on CD2 of the current, critically acclaimed “Bedrock 14” compilation LP – Kurtz & Bomber return with the even more impressive “Work On Me EP”.
The wealth of artists involved for Bedrock 14 was truly amazing, with the 2012 label compilation capturing the essence of why electronic dance music is such an exciting prospect right now by showcasing amazing underground talent, both established and new. John Digweed’s ability to discover exciting new prospects is unrivalled and Kurtz & Bomber, a collaborative project of Troy Kurtz & Panic Bomber (Richard Haig) from the USA is a perfect example.
Here, Kurtz & Bomber show their immense potential once again, with the strutting tech bounce of “Work On Me”, the superbly lush vocalised “Such A Rush” (bringing back memories of Balearic legends The Beloved at their best) and the heart-warming, euphoric “Forever Forever”.
Once again, Bedrock raises the bar with a new duo that will surely be on many people’s radar from now on. In this day and age to not only survive as an independent label, but also to flourish and constantly evolve by introducing new talent and as well as pushing established artists to their creative best, is something that should be applauded.
