Groovik - Arandano EP

A simple two-tracker here, from a label that I don't think I've come across before, Freaky Vibes.

Tech-house is the order of the day. Arandano is a cheeky, jaunty kinda number; at one point I thought it was gonna go into that whole Balkan/gypsy-jazz schtick, which is just a teensy bit in danger of getting done to death, but no, which is probably for the best. Though could maybe have done without the breathy male Spanish vocal that comes in instead. It's still a decent floor workout though.

On the B, meanwhile, Dark Trip is very aptly-named: it's a heads-down chugger with some floatly, disembodied voices and lots of trippy noises, including what sounds like some underwater slapping (?!). It sounds pretty freaky right now, when it's Saturday teatime and I'm all straight and sober; what it might sound like circa 5am, on a cocktail of tooth-giving substances in a darkened basement, is nobody's business...

Out: This week
