About two weeks ago, legendary DJ and author of Last Night A DJ Saved My Life Bill Brewster posted a tune he made with two "top chaps" who make up the New Zealand-based production duo Chaos In The CBD. Take their collaboration with such a prolific artist as evidence that Chaos In The CBD has a special talent for crafting tasteful deep house tunes--a special talent that the duo put to good use in its latest release on Amadeus, the Dusty Sundays EP. The four-track record features a remix of "Dusty Sundays" by Jack Dixon, whose lovely bass-minded sound compliments Chaos's intricately dark atmosphere almost too perfectly. The original brews layers of shadowy vocal samples and rounded synth stabs, a style that holds steady throughout the EP: "Girl Like You" spreads vocals thin over a syncopated rhythm, and "In Between" channels a jazzy, soulful sound familiar to fans of Floating Points.
