To Make It 05:45
What A Trip 05:19


Ecstasy Garage Disco boss Corporeal Face follows up his debut EP for Furthur Electronix with the ‘The Upward Spiral’ on Acroplane. An ode to psychedelic transformation since time immemorial, it also journeys through personal influences.

The soaring hardcore of ‘To Make It’ draws on the ecstatic imprint left by E (see every comment left under any rave video), while also nodding to the funk and soul-infused sound of Reinforced bosses Marc Mac and Dego. ‘Get To Stepping’ revels in a love of M1 pianos and crusty breaks, no wave energies and trance emotionality hidden within its DNA. ’Shake Your Brain’ reduces tech-step to a 160 tempo, long wave vibrations still carrying the spirit of late 90s Hackney squat parties. And ‘What A Trip’ signs off, amen-fuelled jungle shrugging off cliched soundsystem samples to draw instead on 60s Japanese psychedelia and peak UKG.

Just 300 copies of the record available in total on heavyweight fluoro green transparent vinyl and featuring suitably loud artwork by Alec Jagodzinski.

Some feedback..

"Belter of a release" - Mark Archer (Altern-8)

"Yeah, this is the fucking GEAR" - Posthuman

“Unbelievably good EP! All four tracks are
killer but Get To Stepping is a future
classic” - Ben Murphy @ DJ Mag

"Dope flavours, big up!" - Dead Man's Chest

"Nice Oldskool vibes on these. Love it." - Rat Pack

"Corporeal Face proposes in his brand new EP classic loops, patterns and sounds, putting them through a refresh treatment and becoming really dancefloor oriented." - Different Grooves

"Music like this is the sound of an active imagination unconstrained by convention. When listening to this species of sonic fare, I want rhythm, disorientation, a feeling of inner-city emptiness, big bass and sundry rave noises. Everything is present and correct here in spades." - Cacophonous Bling

"Subtle it ain't haha" - Rob Hall
