About this item
We love Multi Culti here at Picc HQ so to see them launch a new quarterly 12" series is a mega buzz. "Solstice I" kicks us off with four rightly hyped artists contributing a track each.
Beginning this journey are some of the label’s most beloved artists. Israeli duo Red Axes provide a chakra-elevating soundtrack with their inimitable blend of psych-garage-tronica, a sun-kissed banger that signals a long-awaited return to the togetherness of the dancefloor.
Zillas On Acid turn in a robustly wiggly jam that electrifies, frazzling zaps and frenetic percussion recall the fritzy tension of the past year, a cathartic shock-treatment for traumatized dancers looking to get back to prime spine-shaking shape.
Mexico managed to stay open for the most part, and TYU seems to have not skipped a beat here, still in perfect form after breaking out as one of the hottest young producers to emerge in recent years. Dark disco, Mexi-chug, call it what you want, but the emergent genre is never better represented than here. Spooky, phosphorescent tribal dance, Tulumminati-tested and approved.
Finally, the big guy - Manfredas - whose remixes and edits have been highlight-reel material the past couple of years, delivers a long awaited original track with his requisite heavyweight swag. Wonky tunings and a chunky downtempo beat underpin Manny’s trademark masterful arrangement style, building patiently, with breakdowns that managed to wring every last drop of impact out of an odd, otherworldly assortment of sounds.
Matt says: Hardcore shamanic rituals from the psychotropic botanists at Multi Culti. Rainforest business of the highest order - toad not included.
