Alps 2 & Simona Drive are outfits with pedigree: as performers, Simona Drive have toured with Maribou State; as individuals, they have released on Ralph Lawson’s 2020 Vision and Fatboy Slim’s Southern Fried Records. And as a collective, they’ve launched Selby Sounds, and now, Alps 2 & Simona Drive have teamed up with Ad Hoc Records proudly for Burnt EP.
The resulting sound is deliciously displayed on title track ‘Burnt’; a lush, feelgood and woozy slice of sunny electronica escapism as the pair marry the exquisite elegance of electronica, dancefloor focus and seductive grooves of house music. ‘Burnt’takes all the aforementioned parts and creates a rich and alluring soundscape. Lush synths fizz with life and effervescence, gushing over soft beats, deep seductive groove and sparkling spurts of electronics, amid a warm, sunny and feelgood dose of escapism. A beautiful, uplifting and lush jam bound together by a smiley feelgood vibe, seductive groove and peppered by bouts of mild euphoria.
