Voyeur make a return to Madhouse Records this April with the ‘Tonight’ EP, comprising four original compositions from the rising duo.
Benson Herbert & Leo Picking aka Voyeur stepped onto the scene in 2012 with their ‘Blame It On The Youth’ EP, released through Kerri Chandler’s then fledgling MadTech imprint, the New Jersey legend has mentored the duo ever since shifting them onto parent label Madhouse with the ‘Rain Away’ EP and featuring a Voyeur remix of his and Jerome Sydenham’s ‘Mama’ on his Watergate compilation. Here we see the pair return to Madhouse with their soul-infused sound that’s seen them pick up support from the likes of Norm Talley, Nicholas and John Daly.
Title cut ‘Tonight’ kicks off the release and sees Voyeur offer up a classically sample based cut, fusing an array of chopped up snippets with loose organic rhythms and ethereal synth flourishes running alongside analogue bass licks and hypnotic vocal murmurs. ‘Don’t Lie To Me’ retains a similar aesthetic with dusty drum sounds running alongside lavish piano, horn and vocal hooks.
Entering the latter half of the release we have ‘Why’ which takes on a jazz-infused house feel, employing infectious guitar riffs, fluttering Rhodes lines and a bumpy rhythmic swing. Closer ‘Philae & Rosetta’ then rounds off this classy collection on a deeper tip with sparse understated rhythms while an underlying blues vibe adds a smooth and smoky feel to things.
Voyeur’s ‘Tonight’ EP is out on Madhouse Records 1st of March (Vinyl) and 6th April 2015.
