Surprise Chef 'Velodrome / Spring's Theme' 7"
Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, they are something of a funky blend of jazz, hip hop, and soul with a shade of David Axelrod which all comes out their own. These two tunes on this 45 are a taste of what is to come.
The A side "Velodrome" starts out with a heavy drum break and an earworm synth line guaranteed to have you humming it long after the song is over. The intro gives way to beautiful and tasteful arrangements showing their music prowess as well as their ear for restraint. The B side "Spring's Theme" is a gorgeous and moody instrumental ballad that arrangements that link together like chapters in a book taking the listener through a myriad of energies that all fit together to make this a quick favourite here at HQ.
