About this item
Rat-a-tat-tat...Sneaker's back! That's right, Dresden's hardest working floor freaker is here to do his thang all over again, bringing his wild style to the ramshackle home of all thing wonky, Bahnsteig 23. The German lets loose right from the off, taking us into tribal territories with the tumbling toms and tippling tabla of "Goddess", a weirdo wave groover with slippery synth bass, Eastern melodies and chanted vocals. Glance left and right, throw your best shapes and try to keep up when the synth solos sweep around the room. After a spot of flem-removal "Watumba" settles into thick polyrhythms, throbbing bass and strange, strained Euro-disco vocals. File this next to Camaro's Gang "The Beast Day" and Tantra's "Macumba" - total Talking Drums smasher right here! Over on the flip, our main man swaps Deutschland for France with a club ready flip on an as yet unknown cover of Space's "Magic Fly". Looping the intro to infinity (and possibly beyond), Sneaker works his way through subtle percussion adjustments and selective frequency tweaks before dropping into the mesmeric melodies we all know and love - stargazing disco at its finest my friends! Last but not least, "Do It" provides a pinging, popcorn style instruction to pull out your bendiest moves, mangling a totally odd bit of rapped French synth-pop for all the freaks on the floor. Top!
Patrick says: When I spun this wax on the shop stereo, "Watumba" prompted our Kickin' Pigeon to demand I produce it in my next prominent peak time set. Afro-cosmic insanity from the heart of Hamburg - of course I'm gonna drop it. Bahnsteig 23 bring the brilliance with another wonderfully wonky four tracker.
