I:Cube is the dude basically – he’s managed to pull off the clever trick of being hugely popular and admirably weird. Following on from his, brilliantly titled, double pack ‘Double Pack’ we now get this cheeky little 45.
Side A is an edit of ‘XXXX’ from 2017’s Œil Cube EP. Red Light Records man Abel has flipped it from 33 to 45 and extended the groove making it a peak-time boogie banger. On the flip we get ‘Etire en Avant’, an archival cut recorded to tape by the younger Mr Cube in Paris in 1996. Testament to the man’s talent that he was knocking stuff like this off way back when and it still cuts the mustard now.
Big ups to I:Cube and Versatile! This is the Test Pressing PICK OF THE WEEK.
