Slow Handed has just released their first album, Apollo! Some pretty sick instrumental beats composed/produced/performed/recorded/mixed by Canadian power duo Mike Ardagh and Brandon Smith. Their stuff is moody and engaging with lots of space echo and dub treatment. The bass lines are deep, and the grooves, intense. Fantastic!
ps. read their bio on their website… it’s stellar:)
Slow Handed is Brandon Smith and Mike Ardagh, an instrumental dub duo from Canada. They love vintage keyboards and everything space echo. Their stuff is fresh and groovy. (I wanted to share this tune with you otherwise it’ll just sit on Mikes hard drive.)
Check this track King Tubby Dog ft. Gavin Youngash on guitar. (wait for the organ outro…sooo good!)
Written, performed, produced, recorded and mixed by Slow Handed.
This is my fav song to start my mornings with.. People Make the World Go Round by Ramsey Lewis. Mike & I choose a different record each morning to start the day off..and this is my go to…Upendo Ni Pamoja (1971). I love the production.
Personnel: Ramsey Lewis (piano, Fender Rhodes piano); Cleveland Eaton (acoustic & electric basses); Morris Jennings (drums, percussion).
