Quivver "Four Fatties EP (Part One)"

Out Now on Boz Boz Recordings

Ex Tilt member John Graham is a true veteran in the production arena, and Quivver's past releases have been some of the hottest the scene has seen. His label Boz Boz was started up in 2002. Predominantly intended for his own productions, the label has a history of hot releases, and the Four Fatties EP makes a welcome addition to the catalogue.

Sporting a unique groove, the tracks on this EP showcase a diversity in Graham's production skills, which is definately a positive move. Spittin Funk has a raw funk element to it which could be described as having an old school flavour almost. The percussion is sure to get people moving, and some dirty guitar effects build the groove up to a very high peak. Some vocals sampled over the composition help create the atmosphere, and every element fits the funky atmosphere perfectly, nothing is out of place. This coherence makes Spittin Funk a standout track, and fans of the more traditional Quivver sounds could possibly find this an intimidating release.

Reddies takes on a darker sound, but continues on from the groove of the flipside. The funk has much more of a subtlety to it though this time. The bassline is tight and provides the main element of the composition. Effects and a cut up vocal sample back the rest of the composition up, and all combine to create another unique sound from Quivver.

This release will definately be one to divide the critics, but to those who approach music with an open mind this will be received very positively. Spittin Funk being the stand out of the two tracks, and those who enjoy this release are well advised to check out Part Two of the Four Fatties EP, providing an equally unique experience. A strong release for Boz Boz.
