CFCF is Montreal’s Michael Silver, a very busy remixer who’s touched up HEALTH, Sally Shapiro, Justice, Spank Rock, and many more ceteras. You’ve sampled one of his solo compositions before with “Crystal Mines,” and today’s track comes from a forthcoming full-length of originals titled Continent. It’s titled well, “Monolith” being an evocative name for the mostly minimal motorik groove that eventually opens up into an expansive synth-washed house track, pop-funky piano solos and all, nearly five minutes in. If you have seven minutes of listening time to spare, grab it:
CFCF – “Monolith” (MP3)
Continent is out 10/27 via Paper Bag, preceded by The Explorers EP (featuring labelmate/remix fodder Sally Shapiro) on 10/6.
UPDATE: Here’s another from Continent. Fleetwood Mac cover…
