ABOUT THIS ITEM
Is It Balearic? continue to provide a steady supply of killer 12"s.
Pedro Rompante is the producer and DJ behind a long history of pseudonyms, who now stands out as himself, Rompante, and presents us with a new production line, clearly influenced by current electronic culture but, at the same time, reflecting an unique individual journey into the world of electronic music for the past 10 years.
First up is 'is How Low Can You Dance', an electronic Balearic-house chugger with bongo heavy percussion giving it an almost tribal feel, reminiscent of early 90s Italian tracks like 'Mama Yehe'. Building nicely to a synthy crescendo then hits the percussion groove again. Finland's Scandolearic warriors Ahiki pitch the track down a little and add trademark guitar and some new vocals on their remix.
Side 2 contains the wonderful 'Treat'. A deeper, swirling, yet still percussive house groove with that irresistable slo-mo vibe. On the remix is the legend that is Charles Webster. His subtle production skills are used to maximum effect , pulling apart and deftly re-assembling the original elements into a deep house bomb with a slight nod to Detroit.
