Cesar Caballero – Funketeao

Cesar Caballero Funketeao Groove Garden
Three very different mixes on offer of this cut from Colombian-born, Toronto-resident Cesar Caballero on his own Groove Garden imprint.

In its original form, Funketeao is a pleasant-enough slab of house music, with rolling beats, a "Music!" vocal sample and a hint of Balearic-style prog. But it's the remixes that are doing it more for me. The Omid 16B Remix is a deeper pass with a distinctly dubby edge, particularly as the track progresses (if you'll pardon the pun). Butter the Butcher, on the other hand, goes the other way entirely, packing his mix with rave/nu-nrg-style pulsing synth bass to produce a certified rump-shaking call to the dancefloor.

And in this case, two out of three is plenty to be going on with, ta!

Out: This week
