Despite its frigid temperature, Moscow has still been able to churn out some seriously hot releases in the past few years. A perfect example of that is none other than Lay-Far, a favourite of ours here at Bolting Bits. With two LPs under his belt, including the recent ‘How I Communicate’ on Local Talk, and an array of EPs on labels such as Soundofspeed and In-Beat-Ween Music, Lay-Far shows no signs of slowing down and his production chops continue to improve on his addictive blend of deep house, disco, funk et al. Back in 2014, he released the 3 track vinyl-only “Long Titles EP” on Amp-Art Recordings (UK) to favourable response. So favourable, in fact, that one of its tracks ended up being stolen and released in South Africa under another artist’s name – this led Lay-Far to the decision to re-release the album digitally, with a bonus track, on In-Beat-Ween Music, quite literally renamed:
“Long Titles EP, Which was Produced in 2012, Signed in 2013, Released on Limited vinyl In 2014 and a Track From which was Stolen in SA in 2016”.
We are delighted to exclusively premiere ‘Bonus Track: Entitled From Head to Toe’ here at Bolting Bits. Starting out as a dubbed out disco , From Head to Toe soon ascends into a funked-out jacking stomper, with a meaty kick, quirky percs, and smooth transitions, marinated in classy jazz samples. Originally produced in 2012, the track finally gets to see the light of day, and enlightened DJs should be sure to cop this release as soon as possible! Stream-able below, we’re sure you’ll be as energized as we were when we heard it for the first time.
