It takes awhile to get there but “Dirty Games” will lead you to the promised land. The title track is the highlight of the new EP from Saine & Smith, a duo from Stockholm, Sweden about to drop a new EP for Mike Simonetti, Adam Gerrard and Mike Sniper’s 2MR.
Seasoned with a sample from the late Vince Montana, Jr.’s orchestra of disco wonders (“Who Needs Enemies (With Friends Like You)”) “Dirty Games” strikes a match, lights the wick and builds into a soulphonic frenzy. Check:
The complete Dirty Games EP features six tracks and three of them are gems – the radiant “Dirty Games,” the punished synthwave sound of “Moon Monsters” and the dub musique concrete of “Street Converse.”
