Review: Not a lot is known about this Berlin-based project right now, besides rumours of a full album of originals later on this year. For now we have two awesome bootleg/edits... "My Wild Love" gives The Doors a smoky, mid 90s rolling D&B twist they've always deserved while "Twisted" takes Wayne G's heavily sexual spoken word hard house anthem from 1997 a Latin twist that no one could ever have predicted... And is about a trillion time better than the original. We need more of this.
Review: Happy birthday to party-starting, funk-fuelled record label Resense, which put out its first 7" single 10 years ago. To kick off a new decade, they've enlisted the services of regular contributor Andy Taylor. He begins with the percussion-rich bounce of "Kitschy Jungle", where original Afro-funk vocals and instrumentation ride a jaunty tropical rhythm track. It's tastefully done, with Taylor's tasty new beats working well with the dusty, sampled elements. Over on the flipside, he opts for a more straightforward Afro-funk feel, lacing punchy horns and reverb-laden flute lines atop a killer funk break and heavily compressed bassline. File under: "dancefloor fire".
