Raincloud

A 2 track crossover jazz single (4m 34s) — released May 10th 2010 on Mukatsuku

"I've never heard anything like that before!" - for Twin Cities that's a Eureka moment, not a reason to hit delete. Where others might reboot the sampler, Guynamite and Analog Jones call in the string section, add some Brazilian drummers and write a killer pop hook so it all makes sense. Through many a late night, wide-eyed studio session they've combined forces to create a funk-drenched juggernaught of an album called 'Like That Every Time'. While putting the song at the heart of each track, Twin Cities fearlessly combine influences with a healthy disregard for hype or convention. Joining them on this roller-coaster ride are a transatlantic All-Star cast of vocalists including Shea Soul, D.ablo and Duchy. The resulting album sounds fresh but delivers enough timeless moments to soundtrack a lifetime. Twin Cities under other guises(Guynamite/GUYNAMUKAT/Analog Jones) have already attracted the attention of tastemakers across the globe with airplay from KCRW's Jason Bentley, Toshio Matsuura, Michael Ruetten and Radio 1's Gilles Peterson. The restless duo are busy working on numerous side projects and remixes and, alongside D.ablo, run London's notorious Boglewaltz parties. This debut double A-side 'Raincloud/Anticipation' takes their melodramatic sound out of the basement and lets it loose on an unsuspecting world. Raincloud features Shea Soul, well known for collaborations with MJ Cole, Phil Asher and last summer's funky house smash 'Make it Funky'. On Raincloud, Twin Cities take her into classic soul territory but mix it up with their own brand of futuristic stardust. Shea delivers on the vocals with a song that's simple, sophisticated and universal all at the same time. Anticipation is a searing ballad driven by synths and swing beats. Duchy's emotional performance rises and falls with the dramatic arrangement. It was ony a matter of time before Twin Cities teamed up with Duchy. Having met at London's legendary CDR night, a shared love of classic songwriting and desire to reach for the future led to this track and other collaborations soon to be heard. With 'Like That Every Time' landing later in 2010 prepare yourselves for Wild West Crunk, Arabian P-Funk duets and other musical lifestyle solutions from the Twin Cities metropolis!

look out for the debut outing from London duo Twin Cities. “Raincloud” features a vocalist who’s been bubbling under for some time now, Shea Soul. You might have caught her velvet tonsils on a couple of dance floor cuts for West London don Phil Asher, but here she turns out a proper soulful head-nodder. Twin Cities are producers Guy Guynamite and Analog Jones - a duo who aren’t afraid to combine proper song writing sensibilities (some might even call it an ear for a ‘pop’ tune!) with a genuine underground flavour. Look out for the album featuring vocalists D.Ablo, N’ea Posey and the aforementioned Miss Soul, entitled “Like That Every Time”. Soon come. - Echoes
