Sensation gets thumbs up fro Monkey Safari…


Monkey Safari – Sensation EP
Hive Audio

Monkey Safari don’t take themselves too seriously and their music is always fun and fresh. Proving that once more is this latest EP from the German’s on Hive Audio, complete with a remix from their sometime collaborators Animal Trainer.

Right from the off ‘Sensation’ suggest bit things are coming, and they do. The baseline is a tight succession of notes that locks you in as some effected vocals add another layer of grit. The other original is even more grubby and druggy, with a sweaty vocal demanding you to clap your hands and cowbells giggling in the background.

Completing the EP is another fine remix from Animal Trainer who layer in plenty of sandpaper textures but retain the irresistible baseline from the original. Clouds of dust and half heard human hums flesh out the track, as do some searching sci-fi synths. Fun but functional business around, then.
