LOST BANK CARDS & FRANK RIJKAARDS (AMIR ALEXANDER RMX)
12" Vinyl UK25.10.13
leeds burgeoning vinyl only label albion records is ready to follow up the success of their debut ep from fabio monesi with three new tracks from de sluwe vos. the fast rising dutchman is a staple on his local amsterdam scene and plays clubs like studio 80 and many big festivals with his impressive live show. the ep comes with a remix from hotter than hot chicago talent amir alexander...
as a man well versed in the moves of the old-school, fabio monesi launches his albion imprint with the immaculately executed styles of 623, full of sexy 90s synth notes and crisp, pumping beats. washerman brings a more rugged style on his remix of the tune, dropping in some cheeky and thoroughly familiar samples, while the melody wobbles around an amorphous scale. the peephouse finds monesi reaching back to the soothing organ tones of the dx7, with a gentle and piano-driven throw down that stills carries plenty of heft for the floor. rio padice steps up for another remix of 623 and spreads a strange and nervous shape-shifter of a late-night jam, scattering the vocals like confetti and nudging the drums out of joint on a whim.
