Ismael Rivas - Time Is Over

Wally Lopez is one of the friendliest people you could meet, a big grin-y teddy bear of a fella, but a lot of the output of his Factoria Records label is a bit too tuff and tribal for me to get that excited about. Not so Time Is Over, though – this comes on like a classic Strictly Rhythm offering circa 1993-95, complete with looped-up diva vox and tribal-before-it-went-stupid riddims. It's a Sound Factory anthem for 2010!

Wally himself provides a remix that goes down a less-is-more route, David Herrero a rub that emphasises the percussion, a remix that adds a slightly more Latin edge (but only in the most warped, trippy kinda way). For me it's between the original or Wally's mix, but all four are certainly playable.

Out: This week

About: This is, as stated, on Factoria Records, about whom you can find out more by clicking here. You can HEAR THESE TRACKS there, too. Or, you could visit Ismael Rivas on MySpace, or at his own website. Visiting the latter, I notice he's got similar taste in striking eyewear to Mr Lopez himself…
