MartyParty and Ooah from The Glitch Mob have joined forces as lovestep duo PANTyRAiD, and their new album PillowTalk, out today on The Glitch Mob’s Glass Air Records imprint, is guaranteed to incite booty shaking and baby-making in equal quantities.
Born of a impromptu tag-team set at a late-night after-party in 2008, electronic producers MartyParty and Ooah joined forces as PANTyRAiD to craft multi-tiered arrangements built on booty clap bass music and infused with southern-minded hip-hop sensibility. PillowTalk gleams with dancing synth riffs and swooping breakdowns, poured over a deep sub bass and PANTyRAiD’s signature sharp glitch edit techniques.
Lead single “That’s The Spot” gleams with dancing synth riffs and swooping breakdowns, poured over a deep sub bass and PANTyRAiD’s signature sharp glitch edit techniques. Another lead album track,”Brooklyn Angel” is an arresting cloud trap confection with distant yet emotive vocals and crispy percussion. The aptly titled “Keeping Secrets” has all the sly, stirring vibes of Art of Noise’s “Moments in Love”, and “Just For You” sweeps you off your feet with crispy percussion and fluid, layered synths for straight-up lover’s jam. The entire album is a declaration to dance ’till you’re out of breath, heaving propulsive beats and tinged with unsettling, dissonant undertones that strike the perfect balance between the sexy and the gritty.
While each track stands on it’s own, PillowTalk is a listening excursion best heard complete from start to finish. Josh says it best himself: “This is journey music – the mood evolves throughout each track. PillowTalk takes you on a trip that will make you get caught up in that sexy moment.” In other words – pure audio ecstasy.
