The dream team of Ferrer and Sydenham fabricate yet another seminal track.

Ferrer and Sydenham have been consistently knocking out superb stuff on Jerome’s Ibadan label for years. ‘Sandcastles’ keeps the streak going.

Peter Heller of the Roach Motel and Phela Recordings fame, steps up to strip down 'Sandcastles'. His extended edit tones down some of the tracks dramatization and makes a perfect rendition of the track as a milder introduction for the underground heads.

The original ‘Sandcastles’ - with its sublime piano line coming into its own late in the mix after a lengthy lead in of subtle percussion, throbbing bass drums and stellar synth play. A warm and lush track that utilizes building beats that emit a piano line and finally a wall of synth strings, round this track off perfectly.

If there was an essential Ibadan release – and an argument can be made for many of them in some form or another – this would certainly be high up on the list.

Written & produced by Jerome Sydenham & Dennis Ferrer.
