GOLDBOY 'DEMOLISH DISCO' (EX-FRIENDLY REMIX) ISM RECORDS
ISM057X May 2015
Junodownload Review - Having previously released on sister label Midnight Riot, Bristol-based nu-disco sort Goldboy is given a chance to play his wares on ISM. He duly delivers a trio of original productions, from the spacey chords, woozy grooves and rich bass of "Stomach Funk", to the bold, Rhodes-laden deep house disco throb of "Demolish Disco", via the breezy, late night goodness of "Thru The Nite". Each track is accompanied by a suitably solid remix, with Ex-Friendly's dense, post-punk influenced dub disco remake of "Demolish Disco" standing head and shoulders above the rest. That said, BG Baarregaard's deliciously Balearic revision of "Stomach Funk" is pretty darn tasty.

EX-FRIENDLY feat RICH MEDINA 'JOURNEYMAN' PEOPLE ARE LOOKING AT YOU
PALAY01 JULY 2013
Review - From the soul-stirring opening strains of Ex Friendly's sublime start to the People Are Looking At You imprint, it's clear that the emerging Nottingham-based producer has a gift for music that travels further than mere surface physical response. In a scene littered with disposable vocal turns, the simple poetry of Rich Medina's narrative that runs through "Journeyman" resonates perfectly with the yearning strings and low-slung, bass-rich groove that come to define this exquisite approach to deep house. Jonno & Tommo hone in on the more rhythmical elements with their own dub of "Journeyman" as a clearer club-ready intent meets with the psychedelic potency of the aqueous sound effects and that ubiquitous string hook. Whether reaching for a more meaningful dimension to add to a set, or to simply drift away on the cradling nature of the music and its message, it's clear from the outset that this is music built to last.
