Gong Bong

A 3 track nu-disco single (20m 37s) — released August 18th 2017 on Bearfunk

Its been a year or two since we featured a 12" single release from a new project. So hear at Bearfunk we are really pleased to be releasing a cracker of a track. "Gong Bong". It is from The Caribbean House who are a new(ish) Italian collective based around the core members of Billy Bogus & Ferderico Bologna.

The original is one part slo-mo disco, one part psychedelic moondance and one part sci-fi horror movie. The track begins with swirling bass guitar and grinding synth before layering on a waft of sound effects and spooky keys. If the first two thirds of the track is a caterpillar then the last third is a butterfly as uplifting riffs and swirls of layered keys bring things to a crescendo.

Fellow Italians The Mushrooms Project are up on remix duty first of all. They strip back the layers and concentrate on the growling bass and locked on pulsating synth. Its back to the UK for the second remix where label honcho Stevie Kotey gets his percussion out for a drum, timpani and swing remix.

Stay tuned for more from the Collective on Bearfunk shortly.
