The dream team of Ferrer and Sydenham fabricate yet another seminal track.
Ferrer and Sydenham have been consistently knocking out superb stuff on Jerome’s Ibadan label for years. 'Sandcastles' keeps the streak going.
The original 'Sandcastles' - with its sublime piano line coming into its own late in the mix after a lengthy lead in of subtle percussion, throbbing bass drums and stellar synth play. A warm and lush track that utilizes building beats that emit a piano line and finally a wall of synth strings, round this track off perfectly.
Pressed up the same on both sides, as if he knew this one would get an extra amount of play. A confidence that can be traced back through the numerous amounts of seminal releases this man has had a watchful eye over.
If there was an essential Ibadan release – and an argument can be made for many of them in some form or another – this would certainly be high up on the list.
