The Waterford brothers, SX2, return to Disco Halal as they announce their debut EP ‘Miracle Mayhem’. The brothers have honed in on an indie-dance aesthetic that’s become synonymous with Disco Halal, but they’ve put their own psychedelic stamp on the EP, making the release both spaced-out and dance floor friendly.
Residing from Waterford, brothers Clive and Scott Sullivan have an affinity with the unknown – inspiration can come from anywhere and such an approach is the backbone behind their music. Their offering in ‘Miracle Mayhem’ displays alternative dance music at its finest. A style championed by long-term Disco Halal family (and fellow brothers) Simple Symmetry and label head Moscoman, as well as listeners who are hot on the pursuit for something new.
The title track, with its ever-changing vocal sample that seamlessly swings between the forefront and background, while its occasional manipulation pulls you into a frenzy before the inevitable ecstatic explosion that soon follows.
On the flip side, ‘Where We’re At’ merges the worlds of acoustic and electronic production, pushing the boundaries of dance music in the process. Driven forward by a guitar led bassline, the listener is soon consumed by a sea of synths that grip on to you and refuse to let go.
