Joe Goddard is surely one of the busiest men in the world of electronic music: writer and producer behind the world-conquering Hot Chip, acclaimed solo artist, travelsome DJ, prolific remixer, one half of the emerging 2 Bears house duo and one of the founding members of the Greco-Roman record label and party collective. So where does he find the time to make an EP of electronica so sweet? In bed, that’s where. “wide awake and I can hear my heartbeat / hope it cradles me and rocks my bones to sleep …”Fitting, then, that Goddard’s first solo material in 18 months should open with a chorus of angels, before title track ‘Gabriel’ strides confidently into familiar territory of London’s clubland and its rich musical influences; this time Goddard choosing Gospel and House as his parameters to create a bone fide underground radio and club hit which currently sits on the BBC Radio 1 playlist. Whereas solo album ‘Harvest Festival’ might have erred on the side of electronica and experimentation, the ‘Gabriel’ EP – the first taster of a solo album for next year – punches direct, with the latest addition to the Greco-Roman collective Valentina (who co-wrote ‘Gabriel’) lyrically laying down the gauntlet from the off: “Gabriel you’ve gone too far and you should hang your head in shame / for these wounds I cannot pay, you’ve gone too far / you broke my heart, you’ve gone too far”
