Donnacha Costello - Colorseries (Rubine Red)

This isn’t really “rubine red”, it’s as pink as a slapped arse – and rightly so, because this is where Costello delves into some saucier acid house territory. The A-side kicks off with the usual crisp 4/4 style, but it soon blossoms into the most melodic track of the series so far, bouncing along very playfully indeed. After the darkness of the earlier 12s it occasionally seems a touch insipid, but there’s no time to worry about that – the B-side is where it’s really happening. This is the first time in Colorseries that Costello has stripped the melody completely bare before introducing his beats, and it momentarily brings his lush chords into focus, to breathtaking effect.
