Savages - Five Finger Discount - The Rarity Shop Expansion

Originally released in 2008 in a limited fashion and only on compact disc, the album has been sought after by hip hop and trip hop heads alike. THE RARITY SHOP EXPANSION offers early demos, rare or little known grooves and remixes for the curious ears. Most of them are taken from an early demo version of “Five Finger Discount” that started the story of Savages... The album track “You’re My Chocolate” has since become quite popular among the Greek downtempo DJ scene. The melancholic guitars and tranquil atmosphere of “You’re My Chocolate” are indeed special, and its languid beats lead the listener through an evocative journey told through sound. This cut is indicative of Savages’ vibe and is only one of the highlights on this jam-packed album. Cuts like “Lookin’ For You”, “Long Distances”, and “The Blow” also captivate by combining hip hop, vintage lounge, and dance floor appeal into a heady, sample-rich stew. Savages’ sense of humor is also evident throughout as spoken snippets and spy-crafted rhythms intermingle within the playful arrangements. Savages is on point ... and this Five Finger Discount is a hefty bargain. Mana Mana and Melting Records would like to send a special thanks to all people consciously and consistently supporting the releases. FFD marks the 10th year anniversary of the debut album release (2008 – Chameleon Records).
