Release number four from our Latin lair, and this time we are very excited to introduce a mystery project – Alien Alien with two tracks; Black Guru and Sambaca.
Alien Alien is the shadowy side project of Hugo Sanchez and Rodion who have distilled for us two stone cold cuts of percussive, rolling disco for the dance-floor, backed up with remixes from Horse Meat Disco’s Severino and The Heels of Love.
Black Guru is all about shaking cowbells and a synth line that is somewhat reminiscent of the Tom Tom Club. However a creepy vocal and neon lasers take the track to a whole different stratosphere, where all the colors and creeds of the galaxy throw down as one for some serious hands in the air future disco action. Severino’s LDB-NYC mix breaks things down to a less frantic pace, but makes up for the change in energy with some seriously heavyweight bass and classic house piano stabs,
Flip the record over and it’s all about the cosmic flex of Sambaca. Low and sleazy with a speaker troubling low-end, this hypnotic workout takes you on a journey through oceans and forests , beaches and jungles. Shaking tambourines and rattling drums envelop a vocal that brings to mind the classic Northern Exposure mixes of old. Finally The Heels of Love take Sambaca and add just a touch more urgency with bubbling synth swooshes, extra drums and a bass so thick you could chew on it for hours. One for those more intense moments on the dance-floor.
