Skylark is Nic Fanciulli and Andy Chatterley. The pair have been working together for almost 10 years and their credentials are impressive. Earlier this year they were nominated for a Grammy (yes that's right - A GRAMMY!) under their Buick Project moniker, for their remix of Tiefschwarz's "Damage" collaboration with Tracy Thorn and together have released over 20 remixes and original productions. Their debut artist album "I-Panik" is something Nic and Andy have been meaning to get round to for some time, however, the success of 2004's "That's More Like it" saw the electronic act inundated with remix requests from the likes of Kylie through to Deep Dish. And when Nic also jokes "we are both very random so we never really know what we are gonna do until the day we decide." You can kind of see why it's taken until now to get this release out. Although, patience, they say is a virtue and playing the waiting game here has certainly paid off. The result is 14 tracks ranging from West Coast-esque house to intelligent, melodic proggy sound scapes - there is not one filler on the entire album. Its beauty lies in its versatility - It works in the club, car, after party... Parts of it make you want to dance, part of it makes you want to listen. All of it is a brilliant show case of how insightful electronic music can be and should be in today's world.
