Having made an impact in the electrofunk and skweee communities through a series of 7-inches featuring his signature warped-funk sound, Luke Sanger a.k.a. Duke Slammer shifted gears to produce the material for Simple Pleasures, a 3-track EP showcasing his love of dancefloor friendly tunes that retain the musical richness running through his entire repertoire.

Guided by his roots as a techno DJ, Simple Pleasures is the result of Sanger's desire to move towards a more mix-oriented production style while staying true to his talent for infectious composition and bright, emotive melodies. Inspired by the flat landscape and maritime climate around his home in Norwich, UK, Sanger pulls up the submerged Detroit techno of Drexciya, the classic Chicago acid house vibes of Adonis and the relentless funk of Bootsy Collins to bring forth his own sound that is fresh, concise, and uplifting.

Duke Slammer's tracks are supported by 3 masterful remixes from veterans of the skweee movement. Fitzroy North transports the title track into synthed-out slow funk territory, while Mesak unhinges the watery hooks of Seahenge to create a slippery head-nodder. RPG-H8R rounds out the release with a moody, floating take on Black Shuck.
