For their newest release Innerflight Music have captured the latest sounds from Minneapolis husband-and-wife techno duo Complicit, revealing the superb For My People EP. In execution of their aim to “keep techno sexy” Complicit have made their mark on the US scene with previous remixes and releases for the likes of JQM Recordings, Subspec, and Plan Beating Records. With the For My People EP the pair unleash three heady electronic tracks made to move feet, hearts, and minds. “(This Is) For My People” is almost sort of a theme for Complicit, with a steady, pulsating bass line on an insistent kick drum and rising synth work joining percussion that recalls Throbbing Gristle’s “Hot On The Heels Of Love.” An ominous, pitch-shifted voice joins the fray further adding to the dance floor hypnosis. “Tastes So Good” explores the deeper sound of Complicit, with almost gentle key sounds and smooth machine beats caressing the echoing, repeated female vocal phrase. The bass and textures build subtly but effectively, making this a solid after-hours selection. The third cut, “Dream About You,” continues to tweak Complicit’s formula with an appropriately dreamy feel brought about by ringing synth melodies, warm blankets of bass, and a mesmerizing spoken vocal.
A pair of top notch remixes complete the For My People EP, starting with an epic rework of “(This Is) For My People” by Seattle’s Cyanwave. This live electronic act is no stranger to followers of Innerflight as they’ve contributed a number of acclaimed remixes and EPs for the label. This treatment should continue Cyanwave’s praise as the rhythmic basis of “(This Is) For My People” is extended into over eight minutes of electronic intrigue. Metallic synths, reverb splashes, and a sci-fi groove are just part of what makes this remix the definition of ‘futuristic funk.’ The second remix comes from the legendary Rennie Foster (Dirty Works, Thoughtless Music, Soiree) who takes “Tastes So Good” on his personalized sonic journey, flavored with a tough, percussive rhythm, warm, spacey pads, and an acid-techno bass line. The vocal phrases bounce off a lonely synth melody that increases the cut’s feeling of forward movement.
Dig in to Complicit’s For My People EP … this latest transmission from Innerflight Music is sure to captivate and provide a stylish addition to DJ sets worldwide.
