Parts in the post, pt. 54

“What Is Control?” – this question is clearly asked by Alexi Delano’s newest 12” on Audiomatique Recordings , which is the labels catalogue number 021. While the title track is to be filed as a non-compromising dancefloor banger of the more minimal kind, referring to a jackin‘ Chicago’esque vibe, the flipside under the name of “Not My Enemy” heads for a deeper momentum. Jackin‘ though, but flavored by alienated, flickering string sequences and a kinda shuffling main theme this is recommended for late night abuse rather than for primetime workouts.

Phonique’s tune “John” is the latest output on Steve Bug’s Dessous Recordings – 068 - , a quite classic tribute to the qualities of oldskool House – the deeper kind we talkin‘ here. Nice and smooth accompanied by a pumping but still not overambitious bassline melting into an ever growing track that keeps the dancefloor crowd moving until forever. On the flip there’s “John” reworked by Mr. V& William “Reelsoul” Rodriguez which manage to stay in at the deep end while adding a slightly funky attitude. to the whole tune.

One to keep an eye upon, at least for all lovers of Reggae- / Dub-influenced sounds is Tiger HiFi’s new 12” named “Toop Toop” which delivers relaxed vibes for the upcoming summer, a remix by Bozoo Bajou plus a funny Reggae-version of Michael Jackson’s uber-hit “Smooth Criminal” wich happens to be the very best track out of all versions served. On whitelabel promo circuit only these days..
