Review: Round Table Knights – “Midnight Spark” (Exploited)

Round Table Knights - Midnight Spark Exploited


Former turntablists Round Table Knights have long churned out popular club tunes, but on the Swiss duo’s EP on Berlin’s Exploited label they get a lot more sensitive, musical and darn right jazzy, especially on the first of the two tracks on offer.

Said first tune is “Midnight Spark,” with its tooting trumpet lines, cutesy chord stabs, swaying drums and claps and airy synth work. It’s a great house track that will truly stand the test of time and is certainly one of the pair’s finest jams. On the flip side is “Morning Delight,” a little more lazily stuck in its groove, with lots of piano stabs and criss-crossing synth lines hinting at old-school vibes and subtle acid alike. It’s a fine effort but the A-side is the one that really stands out and sticks in the memory here. Tip!
