The newly-minted Church label continues to impress with long-awaited release of Happa’s ‘Beat Of The Drum’/’Bring It Back.’
The white-label Lorca bootleg of Faith Evans‘ ‘Love Like This’ began Church‘s transition from a club night into a label. Happa‘s two tracks and the Throwing Snow and Seb Wildblood & Apes remixes add to the momentum.
Like all the material we’ve seen so far from 15-year-old Happa, ‘Beat Of The Drum’ is dark, twisted techno rammed with intricate percussion and analog sounds. ‘Bring It Back’ shares many of these same attributes and weaves in a catchy vocal sample, which label owners Seb Wildblood & Apes centre their slo-mo remix on. Throwing Snow takes ‘Beat Of The Drum’ into footwork territory with a typically adventurous edit.
