t-coy s carino - an all-time uk acid house classic from 1987. fusing the industrial clicking and whirring of the uk s post-industrial landscape with the lush, melodic, balearic inspired piano lines of the white isle and sucking us all in in the process. a true masterpiece courtesy of mancunians mike pickering, simon topping and the late ritchie close who s combined projects included quando quango, m-people, annette, a certain ratio and more. it s truly hard to believe this record is 30 years old. it can easily stand shoulder to shoulder with anything being released today. the b-side regret is also an amazing, minimal slice of punk-funky 808 driven niceness. super stripped back and with an innocent charm and poppy vibe it is the perfect foil to the latino house chaos of carino on the other side. one could argue that the a-side will take you up, and the b-side will bring you down (in the best possible way!). this classic has been legally reissued by above board distribution in conjunction with the legal rights holders sony music entertainment. this high quality repress features original 1987 deconstruction records label artwork and has been remastered from sony s original sources by optimum mastering, bristol uk.
akin to deconstruction itself, >the gift< symbolised the credible mid 90s dance hit. surrounded by a fog of cheap commercial fodder, way out wests roberta flack-sampling crossover anthem shone like a beacon, reaching the top 15 of the uk singles chart in 1996.
kicking off the new package is way out wests own 2010 remix. toughening up the original break based drums and adding a few new synth lines is all wow needed to do to breath a second life in their ubiquitous track.
gui borattos remix takes the track into deep tech house territory. gui flips the track to a straight 4/4 beat, adding some organic percussion, side chained chords and his trademark warm distorted synths to create a truly euphoric groove.
nice price deal ** limited summer deal ** !!! four track cd pressing of this 2011 solo ep from gossips large-voiced singer. with production work by simian mobile disco, beth heads deep into dance territory with this release.
