Plenty of producers toy with different guises, and 3am Recordings head honcho, Al Bradley, is spot on with this one.
The ‘Clean Living Is For Suckers’ EP, from his Audiotonic project, experiments within the darker side of disco, exploring grooves reminiscent of early 2020 Vision “deep house”. It’s nice to see the Leeds lad really indulging in slower BPM’s, and it’s clear to see why the likes of Fabric and Horse & Groom in London, along with Leeds institution Distrikt are taking notice, hosting 3am Recordings parties all year round.
My personal favourite from the 3 track EP is by far eponymous track ‘Clean Living Is For Suckers’. The delayed piano and subtle synths create a perfect poolside bopper – such a shame it’s not out ready for the Ibiza season!
