DUBBED OUT PRESENTS - HATCHA & FRIENDS 23/08/14

We review Dubbed Out's 5th birthday party!
Hey Mami - Sylvan Esso - Partisan Records

With support slots for the likes of tUnE-yArDs and Wye Oak and a cheeky appearance on the Jimmy Fallon show (which included a certain ?uestlove on drums), things seem to be going from good to better for Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn’s latest musical project. Rightfully so, they seem to have struck some form of musical gold in Sylvan Esso. This latest single is sure to do them no harm either.  Beautiful, understated electronic soul with a twist in its tail.

 

Poison Within - Bottin feat Steve Strange - Bear Funk

Catchy electro-disco number from Italy’s Bottin with the aid of none other than Visage’s Steve Strange, with his experienced vocal guidance. The package includes a muscular, electro-house remix from Dutch duo, Mason, who weigh in with some big room euphoria and a dub version, making a feature of the choppy guitar licks. Strange’s vocal has not sounded so vital and it’s great to hear him deliver as good as he has ever done, so I say stick with the killer original.

Two Hearts - Jacques Bon - Smallville

This thing of beauty from Jacques Bon, who runs Hamburg label Smallville Records' Paris-based operations, could melt the hard heart of even the most jaded house head. Soothing classic vibes.

Airwave (21st Century Remix) - Rank 1 - High Contrast

Refreshingly under-remixed for a fully paid-up classic, ‘Airwave’ has all-but entirely escaped the attentions of trance’s rework and re-release cycle. After 15 years De Goeij & Bervoets know exactly what the public want here and duly serve it. Some parts (notably the percussion and soaring sub-riff) remain almost untouched; others like the kick-drum programming and mainline bring a far stauncher and more vociferous angle to ‘Airwave’.
