mr raoul k finally got one of his personal ‘heroes to do a remix on one of his tracks. joe claussel takes ‘ayoka (taken from ‘neo-evolution 02?) to a whole new level. he adds a lot of jazz-tingend sounds (especially percussion) and athmosphere but manages to keep the overall african timbre of the original.
distorting former interpretations from the late unchained rhythms series propelling the primitive released >eno< into an entirely new dimension, resulting in what joaquin describes as a mind-fuck battle between himself and himself.

dope new highly limited vinyl 7inch of rain forest featuring exclusive mixes of this beautiful psychedelic house tour de force. experimenting with the uncomfortable mixture of dance friendly production and the sternly serious project of psychedelic adventurism!! these mixes are undoubtedly in a more exploratory tone. luscious chords set the framework for this piano led masterpiece, all the while drifting along on perfectly placed synth arrangements. rain forest might appear pretty at first, a closer listen will yield more confusing emotional reaction as the record at once soothes and disorients. of course, anyone experienced in introspective exploration and healing should know nourishment and pain are not mutually exclusive
