About this item
Dodging the ever tightening border controls and giddily hopping over Donald's wall, Nemas Problemas get a second stamp in their Passport To Paradise. If you know anything about the Swedish collective you know what to expect here - four blasts of obscure heat, lovingly edited for the more discerning dancefloors out there. The Keeper kicks this tag-team death match off in unmissable fashion with the spaced out synth groove of "Bear Claw", a robotic Italo dancer with dreamy melodies, fizzing fx and a great pitch bent bassline. Kool DJ Dust flies in over the top rope with the wonderfully warped "Return Of Kooligus", a clav-led disco funk cut with blaring brass, out of phrase breakdowns and all manner of police-chase exhilaration. Over on the flip, Rasta Nils hypes the crowd with a stripped back Bollywood disco jam which flirts shamelessly with the Wordy Rappinghood hook, while Rizzolo DJ delivers a boogie-based chair shot in the form of "Body Down". Thick bass, squealing synths and a new wave vocal duet combine for a white funk masterpiece. Ring the bell and let's get ready to rumble!
Patrick says: Passport To Paradise provide the perfect follow up to that KILLER 12" from Abel with four weirdo-disco wonders from Sweden's Nemas Problemas. If you dig on synth-heavy strangeness and rubbery grooves then this is yo' new jam.
