Direct from the deepest corner of the southern hemisphere, a.k.a. Perth, Western Australia, Good Company Records is a new outlet for the music of our "West Coast Underground", born out of four years of parties and a newly-opened specialist record store of the same name.
Release number 'zero-zero-two' comes from North Perth riddim doctor Phil Stroud, two extended instrumentals offered generously across two sides of the same 12" black plastic disk, equally suited to solo meditation or dance floor evocation!
Side A is drum workout "The Forest", sounding in the mix or on the breeze not unlike a mid-summer, mid-noughties Villalobos set echoing through a European wood.
Side B is the beachside dawn of "Yemaja", a glistening ode to the goddess of the same name that features the dewy key-tones of Yazist Vaapa's Jack Doepel.
