New Bicep – “The Game”

bicep

Through both their curatorial abilities and impeccable string of releases, Irish duo Bicep has forced the house music “community” to their knees, effectively popularizing a strand of previously ignored “retro” house. Of course, Bicep aren’t the only act to go back to the basics, but they have received an inordinate amount of attention and deserve a good deal of it. PLUS THEY SAMPLE OMAR LITTLE ON THEIR LATEST SONG!!! Sorry, I couldn’t hold it in any longer. “The Game” opens with a classique “it’s all in the game quote” from Baltimore’s gun toting Robin Hood before embracing some moody garage. I’m a sucker for The Wire so excuse my overt enthusiasm for an otherwise solid, but not remarkable effort. When’s that movie coming out anyway?
