In the mid '00s, Dan Lissvik caused the biggest waves in the Balearic pool with the now classic ‘West Coast’ album as Studio, and went on to score production points for the likes of A Mountain of One to Kylie. After somewhat of a hiatus, he makes a return and finds a suitable home amongst Smalltown Supersound with these three tracks of refined and sumptuously delivered disco-noir. Lush.
Arguably the best moment from Raf Daddy and Joe Goddard's sophomore set 'The Night Is Young', 'Not This Time' gets a devastating re-rub from Unknown To The Unknown regular Capracara. As appears to be his wont, it's all done and dusted in under five minutes, but it's a lean, mean garage machine, with no ponderous buggering about. There are brassy organs, string stabs, a blazing loop and Raf's vocals swirling about the place. Bravo.
The 1967, stone-cold rocksteady classic from Keith & Tex (written by Derrick Harriot), given the 2015 treatment by Dreadzone’s Earl Sixteen. It’s all there: the smooth, rolling and ultimately sexy rubadub riddim in a digi stylee, with Earl doing a sterling effort matching the sultry and soulful vocals of the original.
What's not to love here — French luminary Etienne De Crecy's late night electro anthem 'You' picked apart and re-tooled with extra pianos by the one and only Todd The God. Solid.
