Sam Purcell aka Dance’s first EP back in 2012 was a perfect exploration and investigation of visions into the UK music scene in the early 90’s throwing nods towards the thriving rave culture at the time. Dance perfectly encapsulates this in Side A, Still which has to be one of my favourite records. It is a fantastic, percussion-driven breakbeat house track, with airy chords and samples that pay the perfect homage to the track’s inspiration. The tracks eerie start sets an atmosphere, greeted by more than just a breakbeat, vocal samples and a slight layer of reverb. Purcell clearly has an extensive bank of samples, with Still containing an interesting combination of excerpts: Still by Robert Hood and Think (About It) by Lyn Collins, both adding to the dynamism of the record. The record got the coverage it deserved, and was remained in high demand following the 3o0 press issue in 2012, leading to a repress in 2015, so make sure you get your hands on one.
