Kid Gloves “Music Power” Out Today

Posted on Jun 28th, 2011 by Mr Goldbar

Out today on Beatport is “Music Power,” the supercharged sophomore single from UK duo Kid Gloves, aka Freeform Five and the Freelance Hellrasier. By day, they write and produce for some of the best and brightest in UK pop. Once the lights go out, however, it’s club time! Straight to the speakers we go…

Kid Gloves’ Fool’s Gold debut “Bare Knuckle” was a slice of infectious, cut-n-paste disco house that immediately zoomed into Beatport’s Indie Dance / Nu Disco Top 10 for weeks (and rightfully so!) “Music Power” keeps that same energy and funnels it into one funky-ass, rock em sock em robot of a tune, filled with disembodied vocal samples, joy buzzers, and all manner of industrial grooves for the ravers. Dub Police don D1 flips it into an even bigger bass jam, as only he can.

B-side “Below The Belt” is a sonic sibling to “Bare Knuckle” and it’s joyous loops: seven-minutes and twenty-seconds of stretched out dancefloor joy. This summer club must-have comes remixed by Golden Bug (Gomma / Bang Gang) in full on house mode. Lace up your boxing gloves and your dancing shoes, it’s time to party. Read More

Kid Gloves Bare Knuckle EP Out Now!

Posted on Sep 14th, 2010 by Mr Goldbar

Continuing the proud tradition of Fool’s Gold artists with the k-word in their name, it’s not another new school rapper but Kid Gloves, an undeniably groovy UK duo delivering knockout punches of cut-up funk directly to your earholes. Pow!

Even if you don’t know it yet, you’re already familiar with the guys through their production and songwriting for the likes of Ladyhawke, Little Boots and VV Brown, and their copious solo work as Freeform Five and the Freelance Hellraiser. Now with their debut single on FG, Kid Gloves have taken their deft studio touch and applied it directly to the dancefloor.

“Bare Knuckle” and “Brand New Dance” provide their hooks in the form of kinetic disco and house riffs, looped up to the heavens and peppered with manic drum fills and quirky breakdowns. Remixes by fellow students of the sweet science In Flagranti and His Majesty Andre keep the party energy pinned down to the mat all night long.

Buy the Bare Knuckle EP now on Beatport, iTunes and all other digital retailers and hit the jump for an appropriately bugged out promo video that In Flagranti put together for their remix. Read More
