Bostock - I'm Good, On Paper
Bostock chooses a truly blissful four to the floor classic house sound on the playful “I’m Good, On Paper”. With the recent loss of Daft Punk to bring the jams, there is a large hole in many hearts for that delightful mixture of rock meets dance. Thankfully Bostock is more than able to fill this need, for the minimal, energetic stance recalls the sweatiness of the club, complete with all the joy that sense of togetherness can bring. Virtually impossible to resist, their infectious grooves command everybody to simply get on the dance floor. Melodies here are embedded deep, deep within the grooves giving it a dub affect at times. The sheer density of the sound helps to give it a lovely hue, one that has an urbane sensibility behind it.
They hold absolutely nothing back for the song begins immediately with the intense beat. From that beat all else flows, from the lush cadence of the muffled-up melody to the bass line that worms its way through the entirety of the piece. All of it works wonders. Nicely bringing up elements of tech house, dub, and even ambient at times there is a gorgeousness to the way the many different layers intermingle. Nor do they outstay their welcome, working the groove over in a great number of ways to result in something quite splendid to experience in full.
“I’m Good, On Paper” shows off Bostock’s adherence to that pitch-perfect dancefloor madness with a physical, comforting sound that soothes the very soul.
