Rush of blood

Fountain in Hart Plaza, Detroit

Elon, “Tamingo” (Rekleiner Mix) [Infant Records]
This took a few listens for me to get into, something I’ll admit I don’t always take the time to do with all the new tunes passing my way. Something was nagging at me to go back and I’m glad I did. It’s a wealth of skeletal house beats and supple tom rolls, its solitary bass line completing phrases with a simple authority over the vocal snippets; true Rekleiner charm. At times it reminds me of Trentemøller at his least histrionic, offering a drier wit at a similar intensity. I have a feeling Infant Records could end up being the label to watch for low profile heavy hitters just waiting, being set on the tee if you will, for a larger label to distribute the smash (as evinced by Simon Baker’s “Plastik”).

Aril Brikha, “On And On” [Transmat]

DJ Herr, “Litte Me” (U Make Me Feel Junior Lopez Mix) [Acktivism Recordings!]

My review of the new Black Devil Disco Club dub/remix comp is now up on RA.
