ABOUT THIS ITEM
That cheeky ol' brummie, Snorkie, of the Music For The People bunch has rolled out another party starter for the summer. Following on from the last one ("Hotstylin' / Babylon Bob'), "Woman" sees the producer kick off on all cylinders with a block rocking party beat and lots of samples chopped up and thrown into the mix. We get massive flute solos, a shredding electric guitar section and plenty of well known vocal interludes. It’s a plethora of party goodness, arranged to send the girls screaming in hysterics and the boys hastily forming breakdance circles in the middle of the floor. Huuuuge! On the flip we get "Where Stars Are Born" - not as obvious at first, with a low pass filter slowly opening up the hook which is a big female vocal chorus with call-response from the male crowd. Then we get a sloooowed down 90s rave motif before a suitably baggy hip-house rap comes in over the top. This is some evocative music people - trippy and almost Balearic, but with a series of reference points which is a million miles away from any Spanish (or Croatian for that matter) island. Think if Alfredo got sent a load of Brooklyn mixtapes, early 90s Manchester pirate radio snippets and DJ Shadows beat achieve, and mixed the lot in Seahawks' echo chamber. This little gem might well be the result! Highly recommended!
