I was just listening to the original and then found that there was a Barac remix – I was in love before I even heard it. This does the usual squiggly, hypnotic thing, almost building up but never building.
About as likely to be released as Donald Trump is to bring peace to the Middle East.
Unusual vocals over an increasingly prominent beat – it doesn’t fit together normally and this just makes it a very unique techno track – and a long overdue combination of two perfectly musically compatible partners.
Uplifting, sunshine-filled semi-funky house, the kind of thing you’d imagine DJ Sneak would be well into. Doesn’t often have a place on my play-list, but this is just really uplifting and damn good – think it was Cassy who I first heard play this.
Dubfire’s remix of Grindhouse is one of the best tracks ever. Whatever happened to Dubfire? Why does he make such dull, wet music now? That’s another story, this is an exciting brand new remix by the masterly destroyer that is Len Faki, totally in tune and respectful of the original, but giving it a complete overhaul. Buy it. Play it.
This is just amazing. First heard Maayan Nidam play it – well, only her, a fairly straight-forward, slightly stripped back house groove, with this bleepy synthesised melody over it. Very, very addictive – the melody is what it is all about, and goes off slightly on a tangent. Need this on vinyl so badly.
Conflicting modes of tribalism and dreamy, hypnotic minimal come abound with a melody created out of rasping, almost cricket-like sounds. Not to mention the most unexpected background singalong. Different, and so so classy.
