Calamalka- Gooey EP



Today marks the launch of Tenpin Records (run by Calgary's Lorne B + Vancouver's Max Ulis), and Calamalka's GOOEY EP. I've been listening to Ain't No Need and Dominoes on repeat for months now! The EP also features VIP's of the title tune along with an XI remix. Go have a listen and support West Coast music!




--Calamalka is Vancouvers undisputed king of lopsided head nodders. After taking a short hiatus, Calamalka is back with an EP that is equal parts dub and funk, and which showcases his expert mpc style beat making.

The outright banger on this EP has to be "Ain't No Need", bleeps, bloops and sneaky vocal snips compliment an infectious beat made for the floor. "Dominoes" owes more to the basic channel camp, a dreamy intro quickly fades into tasteful dub echoes and a midtempo groove. The title track "Gooey" is an emotive number, make out music for aliens replete with resonated bass and filtered keys, it's the kinda track you want to last forever. On remix duties is Berlins latest Canadian transplant, XI, offering a psychedelic weirdo's only take on "Gooey".

This is an exclusive that will only be available until April 2/2012. After that date it will be available in all of your favourite online stores
