The Go! Team have returned with new single Cookie Scene on Memphis Industries. A bouncing flute pattern, finger clicks and firing ray guns lay the groundwork for guest rapper IndigoYaj to skip on. Listen to The Go! Team’s Cookie Scene via YouTube below.
With the flute in a locked groove, junkshop percussion takes centre stage – built from a marching drum, a quarter pinging against a glass bottle, rimshots and the maple on maple of drumsticks hit together.
Says Ian Parton: “The stripped back swinging percussion of ‘Iko Iko’ by the Dixie Cups and the loud crunchy shaker in Salt-n-Pepa’s ‘Push It’ were both inspirations and I’ve always loved the way Bollywood or William Onyeabor songs would have random laser beams and electro toms popping up. I wanted to mix the street corner with the intergalactic, to take Detroit to outer space.”
Cookie Scene comes out on yellow vinyl, backed with another new track Free Breakfast Program on 11th September. Pre-order from their store here.
