Coyote's long running Is It Balearic imprint score perhaps their finest release to date with this twelve inch from Hardway Brothers that figuratively throbs away at the stylus. We've been quite the fans of Hardway Brothers since they surfaced on History Clock with some unhinged proto house business towards the tail end of 2010, and it's clear that Sean Hardway's ongoing sting alongside Mr Weatherall at their sub 122bpm A Love from Outer Space parties is having just the right sort of effect on their productions. "Mania Theme" crawls into action, driven by gurgling analogues and twisting metallic rhythms, accruing laser guided synth lines and rasping percussion along the way as the track builds towards the most angelic of mid way luv'd up moments before falling foul to gravity and starting its descent again. There could be few ways to possibly improve upon the track, and a well chosen Andy Weatherall remix is one of them, aligning the track to his recent lineage of mind bogglingly good rockabilly aesthetics applied to a discotheque template. The moment where a humongous organ arises through the mist will surely remain one of this year's highlights on wax. It's might be considered thankless task trying to match such a remix, but Toby Tobias' widescreen jackers version on the flip gives the track a different context that is just as rewarding!
