Review:

Clives Alright – Pteradactil Disco
Release Date: 24/01/2011, Cat No: HOTC006
 

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

A cheeky dancefloor groove that is underpinned by a textbook Hot Natured bassline. Humerous vocals inquire about Clive's (Clive Henry) well-being which is eventually answered mid way through the song with a sample from a telephone call, confirming that Clive is infact alright…

Only when Four Tet was watching youtube did he relise Reboot was behind this masterpiece and telling his label (Domino) they were able to official release this 10-minute remix, which lays out Molina’s sing-song chants and acoustic guitars over a rolling groove.
