DJ Sneak - Blue Belly Bandit E.P.

A great EP of housey nonsense from 1996 here, with lots of those filtery bits'n'bobs that were doing the rounds back then.

A1 features a sax riff which I'm sure I've heard somewhere before, I'm no fan of the sax but it's not too intrusive. Great title though, conjures up all sorts of images in my deviant head.

A2's got a great riff that makes you think it's slowing down and speeding up with a great wee guitar lick on it, before a vocal hook comes in, "can you feel it?" (hence the title, I guess).

B1 is where it's at though, lots of great synth sounds coming in and out as we progress through the track, over a guitar riff that reminds me a wee bit of the start of Sueno Latino.

This'll be the last post for a couple of days as we're off to a wedding in a castle down at the borders (on a Tuesday!) and if it lives up to expectations should write us off till Friday...

Cracking EP! BTW the horn sample on 'Sneaky Finger Man' is from 'Candido' - Thousand Fingered Man from '79 - classic bit of disco/proto-house
