Recommended: Geeeman – Bang’t

While we admit that we’re not ahead of the trend on this one, we can’t stop listening to Bang’t, the recent single from Geeeman on Clone Records’ impeccably curated Jack For Daze Series. Geeeman, the Chicago house side project of accomplished producer Gerd, made an impressive debut late in 2010 with his whacked out, raw-as-fuck Rubberband2 12″ (also on Jack For Daze). And the Dutch producer delivers once again with “Bang’t” and “Fire Extinguisher,” two slabs of lean, jackin’ house that have been stripped down to the bare essentials.

“Bang’t” achieves a seductive, hypnotizing effect thanks to a smoldering organ loop, repeating endlessly alongside an effective and straightforward “bout to bang it” vocal sample. The itchy drum sequencing – restlessly cycling through different 90s ghetto house rhythms – offers the only real variation throughout the track, but we love it precisely for this bold simplicity. On the flip side, “Fire Extinguisher” lands in much more rugged territory, with a rude bass line that shoves your face in the dirt for 6 minutes. Geeeman flexes some enviable drum programming, grounding the track with a swinging hi-hat loop while brash 909 snares and cymbals compete for attention in the foreground. Even serious jackers will need to stretch before facing this one! An efficient and entirely satisfying two-tracker, Bang’t continues Jack For Daze’s inimitable output and makes us crave more from Gerd’s Geeeman alias. If you haven’t picked up a copy yet, you’re missing out!

Geeeman – Bang’t (Clone Jack For Daze) is out now on vinyl and digital.
