In the lead up to his forthcoming debut album Sunset Service, Locked Groove presents Out Of Orbit/ Wally's Groove World, a two-track EP due March 1st on Hotflush.
‘Out Of Orbit’ fuses a marching framework with glistening build ups and classic rave melodies. ‘Wally’s Groove World’ - a nod to the beloved Antwerp record store - spirals through a relentless rhythmic motif, employing sounds of the 90s Belgian underground with a hybrid approach.
Following an acclaimed EP series that saw Locked Groove exploring Belgium’s musical heritage through a contemporary lens, this package marks the final step towards his debut album Sunset Service - the amalgamation of a diverse and carefully studied musical history, due March 8th.
I haven't been able to get ʻOumuamua, the otherworldly house track that is the back side of this single, out of my head for over a year now. I love the steady beat of this album over both Satellites (both versions) and ʻOumuamua - and I love the synergy that Scuba and Hammer bring here. ROFL
