Mr. Pants is a purveyor par excellence of that unmistakable fresh beat: 80s Soul, Electro Boogie, Early Rap, New Wave, & Post-Punk Disco, all of which can be found on Welcome where James plays drums, keys, guitar and sings.
From a radio perspective, what format does this fall under - this new style that Pants has invented? Do you play it on the groove alongside the likes of Skyy, Cameo, or even Pharrell (listen to KA$H)? Or do you play it in the underground alongside the up-to-the-minute electro pulse of Egyptian Lover, Cybotron and even Too $hort? The answer, of course, is both! Theres enough Pants to fit any style.
The flip has three non album cuts, starting of with Monster, (Moog's Minimonsta?), a percussive cut with trademark synths and incredible bass. Second on the flip is Space Date, a dreamy sort of midtempo disco cut with horny vox and pounding bassline. Rocking at last is a minimal sort of house rhythm track with vocals (although not audible in the soundfile, sorry for that), a take on the Adonis original. Well recommended!!!
