Prince of Queens - The Scene Over

by Ocean Parkway


Artist : Prince of Queens
Title: The Scene Over
Format: 12" EP
Speed: 33 RPM

Ocean Parkway, the new sublabel from Brooklyn’s Names You Can Trust, continues into the deep with a future dance sureshot! Prince of Queens aka Felipe Quiroz normally lends his talented musicianship on keys and bass to the live ensembles of Combo Chimbita and MAKU Soundsystem, but behind the closed doors of his Bunker Studio a new sector of blissfully solo, machine-made electronic rhythms are steadily bubbling to the surface. Call it techno as imagined by a tropicalista, as the vintage analog tones of classic house are twisted by a kaleidoscope of influences both Caribbean and Chicagoan.  From the wavy beachside vibes of the EP’s opening number, to the deep, evolving arrangements of The Scene Over and The End Scene, on to the jazz-chord-fueled robotic timbale rhythms of Thank You Friends, and finally forward to the future-tropical polyrhythmic sequencing of Winter Islander, it’s an impressive range of style and skills on display from this talented and up and coming producer.
