COLD CHILLIN INKSWEL - LEMONADE CITY EP - LUMBERJACKS IN HELL
Australian synthesizer enthusiast, boogie revivalist, and occasional house producer Inskwel dons his rarely used Cold Chillin' Inkswel alias for this outing on Marcel Vogel's Lumberjacks in Hell outfit. While the Aussie producer's disco and boogie influences can be heard on Lemonade City, for the most part the EP is a house-centric affair. "Mercury Retrograde" melds a midtempo, head-nodding chugger out of backward synth melodies and analog sounding beats, while "Ompai" delivers his usual, soft-focus blend of vintage synths and warm, floor-friendly bottom-end. There's a chunkier feel about the heavily filtered disco bump of "Lemonade City", while "Degrees In The Shade" moves from metronomic house throbber to sparse P-funk jacker in the blink of an eye.
