Description

The Chain - Letting Go / Geo

The Chain, also known as Dan Foat and Nathan Boddy. As ‘Foat & Boddy’ the pair have previously released on the highly regarded Mule Electronic label but indivdually Nathan is a well-known producer and engineer, having released several EP’s over the last 7 years under his alias ‘Office Gossip’ through the Winding Road label (which he co-runs) and Urbantorque amongst others. Although the focus is now on The Chain, with an album planned for next year through R&S, Nathan is also working on a project called ‘Buelah Heights’ with Rob Mello and Lyn Goddard as well as recently engineering the new Gary Numan material.

As DJ’s both Nathan and Dan have being plying their trade for years, having been fortunate enough to be invited to play the world over, including both holding down regular residencies. Their music, in their own words, draws on their mutual influences of Dartmoor, Soul music, London, Songs, Devon, Techno and Carl Craig. It seems to be working as this EP has been getting rave reviews since the original demo was finished just before Christmas, with support already coming from big names such as Ewan Pearson, Radio Slave and Steve Lawler.

For their first release through R&S, The Chain have come correct with the type of slick, powerful Detroit-techno influenced electronica that you’ll have come to expect from the label. Indeed both tracks sound classic, there’s a big nod towards the early 90’s, but balanced with large doses of contemporary production to keep them moving in the right direction. A-side ‘Letting Go’ evolves around a huge ever-growing synth line and understated low-slung shuffle groove, with subtleties aplenty and the element of strings, there’s no getting around the epic feel to this track. B-side ‘Geo’ goes more tribal with its beat and bassline, but has the most beautiful sun-drenched synth that comes in and out and combined with the deeply embedded vocal chants, it manages to capture the true Balearic spirit whilst keeping it techno. Impressive.
