Known for distorted vocal hooks, sludgy beats and bass lines so deep you’ll think they crawled from the depths of hell, Human Movement are the Sydney production duo bringing a new meaning to the word filth with their low-fi techno.
They’ve just released Right Thang featuring Elliot Porter, a poppier, more vocal track than anything they’ve done before. The single package featured remixes from Tregs and TÂCHES, but what really caught our attention was a B-side, Human Movement’s own ‘re-suss’ of the track.
So we asked the practised cratediggers to embark on a deep-diving experiment, finding 10 of their own favourite B-sides. Here’s what they procured:
Deep cuts and B-sides are too often the hidden gems on huge releases. Find out what you’ve missed as Human Movement dig up their 10 favourites.
Jackie – Natural (Kai Alce Distinctive remix) – Natural EP
The general vibe of this track is what gets us. It’s amazing how only two chords can have such a strong effect when given the right texture. They also mix with the other elements so damn well.
Pelvis – Dance Freak (DJ Haus Union Jack remix) – Dance Freak EP
DJ Haus is a bit of a veteran in the dance music world now, so it was no surprise that this remix was amazing.
Cale Sexton – s.t.r – East Link EP
This whole EP is actually amazing but this B-side has some really nice atmosphere and groove to it
Nubian Mindz – Body Mover – Pulsing Heart EP
This is the last track on the EP and has a sick breakbeat rhythm going for it. It also has some qwirky sounds running in and out of the track, making it a bit on the left-field side of dance music which is cool to hear.
Edseven – Broadside Feat. Sarai (Peret Mako Remix) – Broadside EP
As much as we love the original, this remix is certainly just as good. We love that they brought in a vocalist for this, it works so nicely on top of this record.
Intr0beatz – That DUB feat. Lay-Far – (Tape mix) – Footwork House Jam 1 EP
This really is one of our favourite songs right now in general. We love the toms interacting with the kick drum, giving it such a nice groove.
DJ Boneyard – That’s Right – House Crime Vol 3
That’s Right has a cool sample running through it. With a big kick drum and some saturated hats, it’s a proper rinser.
Terence Terry – Zipolite – Coney Island EP
This is one of those house tracks that just have a real clean, crisp drum with some jacking hats. It’s the perfect club track.
Mall Grab x Rudolf c – Untitled – Salt 001 EP
Mall Grab and Rudolf c have made a nice blend between acid house and lo-fi house. With a resonant bass line blending, some lush chords and a lot of the elements being a bit saturated, the song has a real nice warmth to it.
Makcim & Levi – Sandwiches (1055ML EP)
This is the first track on the B-side and has a real catchy bassline. It rolls throughout the song giving the track this real funk driven groove.
