"Listen to the Basic Moves"
Basic Moves are teaming up with Listen! Festival again for the 3rd year in a row to curate a stage presenting artists from the past and new talent for the future. This year’s promotional tool is something tactile and very common in the Basic Moves world… It’s a 12” vinyl record!
All of the benefits of this record will go to Liaison Antiprohibitioniste (www.laliaison.org), an association for people affected by drug policies. It brings together those who are confronted with the problems caused by the prohibition of certain drugs. All are convinced, from their experience, of the need to implement an alternative policy to prohibitionism.
The A-Side features 2 tracks from Casablanca-born, now Brussels-based Driss Bennis aka OCB aka Dj.Booth from the now already legendary Moroccan label Casa Voyager.
The first track is a proper banger for the peak time hours of the after hours, while the second track on the A-side is a broken beat stepper like only Driss can make.
B-side features 2 tracks by Basic Moves’ own Walrus dating from 8 years ago coming from a lost demo asked by a big UK label but that never left his hard drive. B1 was made barefoot and is heavily inspired by early Omar S and the rougher sounds of US house. B2 is an ode to the city he loves and hates at the same time. “Free city light” between a smile and a tear. Brussels.
