Benoit B / Candido
DUPLA RITMICA EP (7 INCH)
7" Vinyl UK
Insanely good and limited 7inch from Banilieue touching on 80s edit / dub mixes, ebm and latin freestyle.
Following Altkat’s Lakerda LP, Banlieue Records is proud to announce Dupla Rítmica EP, a 7” release with a 12” center label, hand stamped and limited to 200 copies.
On the A-side, Banlieue’s own Benoit B delivers a track entitled 100%. It’s a 107 bpm affair, between pristine drum programming, a bassline at the forefront, oldschool textures a-plenty, stabs galore and some digital pan-pipes added for good measure. Here’s a compelling tune with a constant and tireless groove, like one of those obscure B-sides created several decades ago that still sounds forward-thinking.
On the flipside, a track by Buenos Aires-based producer Cándido, who is here joining the dots between the sounds of classic European EBM and of US freestyle under a common latinx thread. With hard hitting percussion, pitched and gated drums, triggered samples, slapped FM bass and Spanish spoken word, this 115 bpm tune is a skilful and dance-inducing nod to oldschool vibes that haven’t lost their dance-inducing power
