Nick Yuill of Heavy Gossip recommends five tracks from DFA's Maurice Fulton
Having left Medina behind, Edinburgh house night Heavy Gossip relaunches this month with a brand new residency at Hawke & Hunter. For the debut date they’ve invited along Baltimore’s Maurice Fulton (DFA): here, resident Nick Yuill gives us five tracks which demonstrate why Fulton’s one of Heavy Gossip’s all-time heroes.
Simian Mobile Disco ‘Cruel Intentions (Maurice Fulton remix)’
‘A massive Heavy Gossip favourite from the moment it dropped, Maurice’s trademark drums and wobbly keys forming the perfect base for Beth Ditto’s vocal.’
Syclops ‘Where’s Jason’s K’
‘Like falling upstairs backwards. Bonkers electronica from Maurice’s own live act on James Murphy’s label.’
Alice Smith ‘Love Endeavour (Maurice Fulton mix)’
‘Spine tingling classic disco that builds and builds until the release of Alice Smith’s glorious vocal. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t smile to this record.’
Kathy Diamond ‘I Need You Here Right Now’
‘From the Fulton produced long-player Miss Diamond To You. A very familiar bassline mellowed right out into a smoky late night/early morning vibe.’
MU ‘Paris Hilton’
‘Mrs Fulton in full effect here, with hubby in the production chair for this gnarly disco-punk offering.’
