about

The dutch duo formed by Jacco Gardner and Hugo Van de Poel have decided to call it a day in order to focus in their promising solo careers, leaving behind a brilliant lp and lots of gigs around Europe. But as fading away in silence didn’t seem too polite, they’ve decided to say goodbye with a present for all the pop and psyche fans out there.

In this final 45, The Skywalkers have rescued two compositions from their now rare lp “Year One” and have embellished them with new arrangements and the magic touch in the mix and the pre-masterization by Jean Audier (the man behind J. Gardner’s “Cabinet of Curiosities”).

On side A, we got “Rosa”, a lysergic beat ballad which in its new form, get an extra point of sweetness, voices sound almost heavenly and wrap the minimalist instrumentation as an evening mist, door to other worlds. It’s almost impossible not to let you be taken away and float while you listen to this little jewel of grand pop.

On the flip side we find “Creature of the Night”, a haunting freakbeat dancer with the hypnotic presence of philicorda organ – skywalkers trademark – , more pop than its previous version, less raw; an uptempo psyche pop dancefloor winner that will put this 45 in all cool djs’ want list.

El dúo holandés formado por Jacco Gardner y Hugo Van de Poel ha decidido poner punto y final a su camino conjunto para centrarse en sus fulgurantes carreras en solitario, dejando tras de si un fantástico y cotizado lp y conciertos por toda Europa como hoja de servicio.
Pero como desaparecer en silencio parecía poco elegante, han decidido despedirse con un regalo que hará las delicias de los amantes de la psicodelia y el pop.
Para este single final han rescatado dos composiciones de su aclamado e inencontrable lp “Year One” y las han embellecido con nuevos arreglos y remasterización a cargo de Jean Audier (el mismo hombre detrás del “Cabinet of Curiosities” de J. Gardner).
Por un lado tenemos “Rosa”, lisérgica balada beat que en su nueva forma adquiere un punto extra de dulzor, las voces suenan cuasi-angelicales, los coros envuelven la minimalista instrumentación como bruma vespertina, puerta de otros mundos, resulta imposible no dejarse llevar y flotar al escuchar esta pequeña joya de pop mayúsculo.
En el reverso “Creature of The Night”, un evocador ejercicio de freakbeat con la hipnótica presencia del órgano philicorda marca de la casa, tema que tras la regrabación ha pulido sus aristas y ha ganado en brío pop, ritmo uptempo que convertirá este tema en pieza cotizada entre dj’s de postín.
No podría haber epílogo mejor para tan intenso cuento.

Este single es una co-edición de Action Weekend Records & Bickerton Records.
