Who does the electric piano solo? I'll toast a wine cooler to whomever is responsible for tinkling them ivories.
Nice EP, especially Wine Cooler!!
As debut 12" singles go, this first offering from Venetian trio &Co - surfer/skateboarder mates who decided to get into music production - is quietly impressive. Opener "Best of Friends" blends the piano-heavy, slo-mo style of Still Going, with twinkling jazz pianos, an air of humid Balearic sunshine, and occasional flashes of Timothy J Fairplay style acid. That last influence is even more evident on wonky B-side "Bonus Acid", which is little more than a beatless exploration of ragged 303 lines and pulsating bass. The EP's other track, "Wine Cooler", smartly joins the dots between rolling, slo-mo disco house and the kind of fluid electric piano solos frequently found on classic Philadelphia International releases.
