About this item
Messalina keeps the pressure on with another fantastic assortment of lost and reshaped Balearic gems for discerning jocks and listeners all over the globe. Volume 11 comes courtesy of label head Lucci Capri and Balearic maestro Andy Kidd, a couple of deep heads who leave no stone unturned in their frequent digging excursions. Capri gets us underway in exotic fashion with a heavyweight steel drum version of Sly Stone's classic "Papa Was A Rolling Stone", certain to take the floor to some place deep and tribal with those chanted vocals. Next up, Lucci gets his loop on, extending and expanding "War & Peace", a throbbing Afro disco groover with phat bass, funky synths, a killer piano hook and a positive message for any United Nations envoys out there. It’s over to Brazil on the flipside with the brilliant "Katarina", a slo-mo chugger full of Rio flavour edited to perfection by Andy Kidd, which is already receiving a lot of attention in Ibiza on the promo circuit. Lastly we have "Crioula", Lucci Capri’s floor friendly version of a lost Jose Roberto samba funk classic. Top quality all the way.
