Much like in our last post about Meraki, today we are dealing with musical disappointment that has turned into excitement. Recently we were dismayed to learn that the wonderful Kim Pflaum had left blog favourites, Yumi Zouma meaning the divine EP II would be the last to feature her gorgeous vocals. This sad news was tempered with the knowledge that she is working on new music as Madeira. Even better is the fact that she already has something to share, in the form of guest vocals on the latest track from fellow Kiwi Alistair Deverick, aka Boycrush.
Those of you with a keen memory may recall that Boycrush has featured on the site before, collaborating with Chelsea Jade back when she was Watercolours. That was part of a split 7” and “Flirt” is the lead single from his forthcoming Girls On Top EP.
Oddly the very first thing we think of as the track opens up is the Beats International classic, “Dub Be Good To Me”. That tank fly boss walk jam nitty gritty moment is fleeting though as the track quickly melts into soft synth laden funk and oh so dreamy vocals. It’s intricately woven with rhythms rippling seductively beneath the electronics and judder of guitar. It’s a lush soft focus disco full of easygoing patrons, boogying gently and happily away.
”Flirt” is taken from the ‘Girls On Top’ EP which is due for release on 27 May.
