about

The boys are gliding back onto the scene with Scissor and Thread’s first release of 2016, “Waiting Ground”. The handsome twosome of Frankie Skates and Tony B. Real deliver us four prime cuts aimed squarely at the dance floor. The vinyl-exclusive, “Ebreo”, sees the duo flex their afro-rhythmic muscle, placing silky smooth bass over a bed of soft swirling percussion highlighted by a pitched down steel drum. Next, an edit first heard on Frank & Tony's acclaimed Resident Advisor podcast comes to light. Deftly cutting the hushed ambient tones of Donato Wharton’s “Absentia” into perfect portions, Frank & Tony loop brittle bits over a chunky kick and shuffling hi-hat to hypnotic effect. The EP's title track evokes the sun-kissed euphoria of early hour raves with its lush atmospherics and playfully subdued piano line buoyed by a thick kick and airy pads. Finally “Pavane” takes the previous track’s laid back attitude and flips it, adding a thick in-your-face kick and propulsive pads for a foot-stomping, hands in the air DJ weapon.
