Frits Wentink launches his new label Bobby Donny with ‘Live Fast, Dwayne Young’. Bobby Donny has been set up to primarily feature Frits Wentink’s own tracks, but focusing on the wonkier, more lo-fi house edge of his sound. The emphasis will be on tracks that are hardware jams on Rhodes, Juno 60 or mpc, then structured later.

His first EP on Bobby Donny opens with ‘Dwayne Young’, which puts the fun into funky with its deep vibe, filtered vocals and creative samplings. Slowing it down, ‘Rio’ is next, like a short but sweet interlude of off-kilter slow-mo experimentation. Then it’s back to the grooving house beats of ‘Guacamole’ with its jazzy backbone, before the melodious ‘Q&A’ kicks in, featuring a gorgeously wobbly overtone. ‘Aquarelle’ is a perfect ending, with distorted elements gradually coming together to find their harmonious compromise.

With ‘Live Fast, Dwayne Young’ Frits Wentink once again displays the hugely creative talents of this much sought after producer. It’s released on vinyl and digitally 22nd June.
