I love these no-nonsense twelve’s that the independent artists/labels have been pressing up lately. There are always just two tracks: a vocal and dub version. You wont find a big name superstar-remix, limited edition picto-etching, and no free download coupon. It’s just a die cut sleeve with some good music pressed on wax. Photocall’s “Flying Tiger of Love” is one of these records.

Photocall, a duo consisting of producer Eli Epstein and vocalist Terryn Westbrook, first came to the scene in 2004, releasing a limited run of their debut twelve inch, “Silver Clouds.” The 300 copies went quick, pushing the vocoder heavy, vintage electro track into collectible status. After a 2007 repress/Dexter remix, an edit for Morgan Geist’s Un-classics series, and a remix for Matthew Dear, Photocall went silent.

“Flying Tiger of Love” brings them back out of the clouds with a near-epic cruise through the skies. Epstein builds the track from punchy drums, into some tweaked bass lines and synths, and then sprinkles in Westbrook’s intentionally kitschy vocals. The formula works and once again Photocall has come out of left field with another gem wrapped in a die cut cardboard sleeve (this time with a vintage sci-fi design). It’s not quite cosmic disco, it’s not quite soundtrack disco, and it’s not nu-disco, it’s just good disco.

In select record stores, and available as a download on beatport.com (since there is no free download code!).

    I have heard the track and it is captivating. The vocals in combination with the drum hits and synths make the track really stick. Great sound!
