Parts in the post, pt. 41

Mannheim’s Tilt Recordings have recently released their cat.no. 004 which is the first artist-split on the label ever. A-Side sees prodcution duo Amex/Kaiza taking care of “Sourcream”, a straightforward Techno-Drum’n’Bass-tune – as the label names its own style this way – causing serious trouble on the dancefloor due to it’s psyched out, processed vocal sample and marching energy. Budoka’s “Whiplash RMX” on the flipside steps the same path musically but is defo more influenced by the minimalistic Future Funk provided by Ed Rush & Optical in their heyday of “Wormhole” – cold, athmospheric sounds accompanied by some subtle ravey elements that keep the floor moving. Play this 12” to a bunch of Industrial-heads and they’ll be freaking out immediately.

Vinyl 2 of Yello's “Oh Yeah” remixes is out now on Universal Music and on a more pumping tip. On side A there’s Ralphi Rosario providing his so-called “Big Room Vocal Mix” which is for big rooms indeed, well fitting into sets of similar more tribalistic jocks appreciating the sounds of Deep Dish and the likes of while Sander Van Doorn speeds things up a bit and deals with the more TribalTech side of life.

Ralphi Rosario also provides a remix 12” of Nelly Furtado's “Promiscuous” , transforming her tune into a pumping, slightly progressive TechHouse-monster that does way better than the original tune. Three versions served here – Vocal Mix, Radio Edit and Dub Mix and it’s unquestioned that the last mentioned is the best out of all. Check.

Ayo comes up with a nice 10” on Polydor these days featuring to acoustic, more Singer/Songwriter-flavored songs named “Down On My Knees” and “Welcome Into My World”. Innocent, fragile and intimate stuff to share some special moments with your boy or girl.
