Masters at Work and Harvey Sutherland Remix New Surprise Chef EP
Masters at Work and Harvey Sutherland Remix New Surprise Chef EPOctober 22, 2021
Hailing from Melbourne, the four-piece instrumental group Surprise Chef has bewitched various underground circles worldwide with laidback ’70s jazz-funk grooves, swinging rhythms, and distinctive synth work that is ripe for interpretation.
Out now via Mr. Bongo, Surprise Chef’s five-track Masters at Work & Harvey Sutherland (Remixes) EP shows us just how malleable the band’s airtight compositions really are. MAW kicks things off under their Nuyorican Soul moniker, injecting the track with a Latin and Afro flavor over a stout broken beat rhythm. The duo also offers a 4×4 MAW Remix, before reeling things back with their MAW Dub of “Crayfish Caper.”
On the b-side, fellow Melbourne native Harvey Sutherland reworks “New Ferrari.” Armed with cosmic synths, sweltering basslines, and sweeping pads, it’s a dub-disco workout that packs a serious punch.
