vinalog’s new ep on relative delivers raging club music with 4 cuts balancing the uk and berlin sound with a masterful touch. the two mixes of “flashback” on the a side provide raw, nasty house with a punchy groove and luscious vocal samples. b side sees two variations of the same motif: “recall 97” has strong uk bass heavy influences with an acid touch and spanish-mumbling vocals, while “redub 97” is a more stripped down version of the latter able to deliver for the dance floor with a more broken-beat rhythmic pattern.
taken from wax poetic brasil album, this 12 features otto, an extraordinary artists who is one of the originators of manguebeat in brazil. the a-side is a monster remix by motor city drum ensemble. deep deep deep! the b-side features the original morena flor and a slightly psychedilic remix with beautiful sitar arrangements by very talented yet relatively unknown duo monoaural.
