Havana Candy – The Black Keys EP

1. All Night
2. Tera
3. Last Train
4. Tera (Flash Atkins Mix)

Havana Candy is Joe Lucas who lives in Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire and is part of a growing collective of artists that includes Flash Atkins and Jamie L.

He has had releases under various guises over the years on labels that include 20:20 Vision and Fat City and more recently on his own Havana Candy Records; next up is Tusk Wax Records. His sound is deep and hypnotic with an analogue sensibility that mixes up balearic, disco and house as the three original tracks here demonstrate.

All Night builds round an elastic bass and skipping drums before bringing in the Havana Candy trademark filtered synths. It stays deep and swinging, working the groove with drops and fills that provide an ever changing dynamic.

Next up, Tera is on the one and builds a groove around analogue riffs, distorted guitars and stabs perfect for those early hours dance floors.

Last Train is deep balearica with vintage synths leading the way. It’s slow, melancholy and electronic, showing off Havana Candy’s skill at making timeless dance music that mixes up different influences to create something original.

Finally, Flash Atkins steps up to remix Tera with some old school acid. Using a 909 kit and 808 line, it builds to a break when the Rhodes is introduced. It’s a dance floor bubbler that will keep heads nodding and feet moving.

EARLY REACTIONS

James Holroyd – Nice carp. Last train is superb.

Billy Scurry – Wow, this grabbed me from the off, lovin that groove on All Night. Very infectious, top support

Dicky Trisco – All Night is the one for me. Wicked night time boogie sounds.

Scope – both mixes of Tera are hot!

Severino Panzetta – Flash Atkins in BIG form at the mo
VERY GOOD

ALTON MILLER
Growing up in the 1970s, Miller soaked up the musical environment surrounding him in the Motor City, taking a particular interest in the sounds of Motown, Philadelphia, Parliament-Funkadelic, and Santana. It was during the early ’80s once the “dance music crazed” Alton became friends with a young Derrick May that he decided to start spinning records, citing Chicago DJs such as Ron Hardy and Frankie Knuckles as prime influences. By the latter part of the same decade, Miller joined forces with George Baker and Chez Damier to start the Music Institute, a short-lived but legendary Detroit club that has since become near-mythical, thanks to the pioneering techno efforts of figures such as May. Following the demise of The Music Institute, Miller took an interest in Conga drumming in addition to DJing, which led to a period between 1989 and 1991 where he toured the world with his music. He then joined forces once again with May, first as an employee of the artist’s Transmat Records label, then as Aphrodisiac, the title under which he would begin releasing his music. Besides his EP on Transmat’s sublabel Fragile, he also released his music on Kevin Saunderson‘s KMS and a series of EPs on Serious Grooves. By the mid to late ’90s, he had increased his presence in the Detroit area through a number of DJ performances and a stream of stunning twelves. His latest album ‘Light Years Away’ had been critically acclamied by the likes of Osunlade, Atjazz and Boddhi Satva
