RITMO DEL BARRIO
Quartier Groove Records veröffentlicht seine erste EP Ritmo del Barrio, die zwei Club Waffen aus den 90er Jahre enthält.
Quartier Groove Records releases its first EP "Ritmo del Barrio" that features two club weapons from the Spanish electronic music vaults of the 90s, TYU's remix of Bravo & Dj's 1989 one-hit wonder "Difacil Rap", and Richard Fribert's rework of the early electronic rumba track "Sueño Almohade" by Sombra y Luz. Both tracks have been licensed and agreed with the original labels and writers, and will be limited to 300 copies.
On the a-side, an edgy club revision of a 90s hip-house track that was originally written by a group of DJs compelling us to join them for a wild night out. TYU's remix, that only makes use of the rad rapapella, makes a perfect match to the daring call and takes us to a 90s rave of today in full style, with its bold drums, slappy snares, trancy synths and road-paving bassline.
The flip comes with Richard Fribert's powerful and fearless hi-NRG rework of the experimental rumba song "Sueño Almohade" by Sombra y Luz, a track that makes a clear flirt with the history of Spain, a country that was once the Muslim ruled area of "Al-Andalus". Spanish passion meets Arabic mystique in this hard, slamming, acid ride of an update. The result, a DJ weapon to be reckoned with.
The two tracks comes together to form Ritmo del Barrio EP, "Quartier Groove" in Spanish, the project by label heads Richard Fribert & MOQST that was designed to encourage listeners to search for more unknown and forgotten music in the most unexpected of corners of the world. [info sheet from distr.]
