Sleek & Cheek – Smokin

SR034 – Digital
Release date: Apr 2013
Sleek & Cheek - Smokin


The artist duo Sleek & Cheek only recently joined forces are Daniele und Luca, a.k.a. Little Lu of the Elektrostubete collective, who already had the opportunity to release his remix work on Sirion vinyl in 2011. The two Berne based artists focused more and more on making music together in the last years. A variety of diverse tracks were created. The songs on the upcoming EP are focused on contemporary dance floor. Quickly it’s clear, no prisoners, no compromise, strictly music. The overall structure is rather reduced nevertheless the tracks carry an incredible dynamic. Sure, sitting on a park bench… enjoying the carefree, straightforward fair weather music with a pinch of melancholy that touches the soul in an overall positive way – that too was intentional.
Content wise the masterpiece is well rounded. Upon a first hearing the tracks even sound alike. But take a closer listen and find the various shapes and ways that revoke the first impression clearly. Subtle details appear and the classic DJ arrangements are set perfectly.
East London based East End Dubs has contributed a powerful, mainly kick drum and sub bass focused remix of “Go Home”. The reduced sounds in the background give room to the main subject, in true EED style! Here too his own laws apply; superior reduced sounds with heavy compression – you can’t ask for a better way to be moved by true bass filled statures. The smiles on quivering lips in the faces are merely the icing at this point.
