die menschen sind unsicher. sie fürchten die zukunft. sie suchen einen anker, an dem sie sich festhalten können. einen leuchtturm, der ihnen den weg weist, sie brauchen etwas, an das sie wieder glauben können. immer mehr verlieren das vertrauen in überholte instanzen und halten nach etwas neuem, etwas kräftigem ausschau.

die drei jungs begnügten sich bislang damit, mit geistig behinderten babyschimpansen klettertouren zu veranstalten, sozial benachteiligte kinder zu segnen, heilmittel gegen unheilbare krankheiten zu entwickeln (sie verkauften sie aber nicht an den mainstream, denn der ist wack) und selbstfindungsseminare (meistens klettergarten) für mc s mit unangemessenem selbstbild durchzuführen. all das füllte sie nicht aus. also bestiegen sie den himalaya ohne sauerstoffflaschen und bauten ein zelt auf. wilczynski klopfte dabei derart rhythmisch auf die zeltstangen, wildstyle kratzte sich ebenso unnachahmlich am kopf, dass das röcheln von onetake problemlos als rap-part durchging.
der rest ist geschichte.

fresh beats delivered directly from the caribbean by venezuelan producer trujillo on his latest appearance on the spanish-venezuelan label apersonal music. trujillos ability to make you feel caught up in an eternal summer vibe gets clearer and stronger with every track he releases. on this release main single >fruit punch< is simplicity at its best, squeezing the most out of basic classic-house elements. it builds up slowly until the original guitar tunes in, thats when you take a sip of your fruit punch (or whatever sweet drink comes handy) and enjoy the sea breeze in your face (whether its there or not..). for the extra flavor on your drink they pour an edit-format track >looking up through you<. lots of original ingredients here enough to make this edit an own piece of music... venezuelan keyboard player mister casanova on board plus trujillo mixing it all up in his best poolside bar style. fresh juicy punched stuff here! on the remix department 2 remix versions from uk based producer toby tobias plus a classy fashioned remix from canadian eddie c. tobias is a hard working man, and when you ask him for one he hits you twice, hard to pick one remix although one had to be selected for digital only release (size matters some time!). what can we say about eddie c.. apersonal had already made a statement that they love classic grooves, and it cant get classier than eddies beats on his remix! this groove is what house music is all about, and it will always be.
