Review: Ray Mang's Mang Dynasty alias is next up on Bristol label Alfresco Disco, serving up the kind of bubbling disco house that sets the West Country party crew's infamous sessions alight. "Crash The Box" is speckled with psyched-out acid and an infectious bassline, giving the remixers more than enough trippy ingredients to get busy with. The Tee Mango "Revision" creates a more twitchy, dubbed out version for freakier spinners to get creative with, and then Lord Leopard amps up the funk with a remix that puts the bass at the front of the action.
Review: Bristolian producer Seka makes his first appearance on local label Alfresco Disco, building on the sound the notorious outdoor party organisers are known for in fine recorded form. "Proto Fish" is an uplifting house transmission of the highest order, while "The First Forest" ramps up the soul factor without losing that playful edge. "Mahalangur" aims instead for a tougher, jacking house sound that provides a variation to the A-side while keeping things soft and sweet. Remixers don't come fresher than Tiago, who turns "Proto Fish" into an ear snagging rumble of off-kilter house par excellence.
