Snuggle & Slap by Various Artists
Released: Oct 2009
Label: Circus Company
Paris' Circus Company began with curious, lopsided dance tracks influenced by Matthew Herbert's sampled cut-ups and Perlon's static-brush minimalism, and it's come far since. Snuggle & Slap highlights the label roster's range, dedicating one disc to moody, woozy, relatively downbeat tracks and the other to more uptempo fare. The distinctions can be pretty subjective: Each half has its share of 4/4 thumps and wobblier grooves; brushed jazz drums, Rhodes and hazy vocals reappear throughout. The vibe shuttles between pensive and cozy, and often manages to be both at once.
