Africana


Another lazy week, sorry. Haven't been listening to or looking for much new stuff... But dug up some nice stuff today. This TBD (Lee Douglas and Justin Van Der Volgen) track, which saw an official release last month, is really cool. Dark deep techno-ish sorta house, the music carries a lot of weight in its stride - and packs twice as much on after the breakdown. Very chubby indeed, it really is a winner.

TBD - What Is This? [buy]

Also been shuffling through some of Jacques Renault's quirky house-ish loops released as the Cabin Fever Trax series. Some very fine grooves in amongst the crowd, although a few tedious ones as well. This one is unnecessarily long and could do with a bit of a re-edit to make it more concise, but it's a fucking hot groove! If you're someone who enjoys the

Cabin Fever - Untitled [buy]

Discovered the Tropical Discotheque 12s released on micro-label Sofrito Specials. Not big on volume 2, but the first EP is very tasty with edits of some laid back African disco groves to kick back to. A little left of field but could work on the dancefloor with an open minded crowd. Does such a thing exist? This edit is by Atlantic Conveyor, who do some interesting dubby kinda disco stuff. COOL.

Let's cap things off with something from The Revenge, for the sake of returning to more familiar territory. All of his edits are truly terrific: Graeme always treats the original tracks exactly how they need to be treated. For the clubbier tracks, for example, it's all about building up anxiety and excitement by keeping chorus' to a minimum, ensuring a violent detonation when the climax is finally reached. This Willie Hutch track is super smooth . Sorry for posting MJ, I really wanted to avoid it for a long while yet, but this edit (under his OOFT Music pseudonym) is a great illustrator of what I'm talking about. Drives me crazy.

TUNES TUNES TUNES. YUM.

you didn't like tropical discotheque vol.2? not even christina lover??

andy webb said...

christina lover seriously hit the spot. i didn't dislike the record, more that i don't think it really suits the blog.

yeah that did come out a bit wrong in the post. i do think the first is better though!
