About this item
After harnessing the power cosmic with a wiggy wax from London's Mytron & Ofofo, Les Yeux Orange return to La République for release number five, getting super deep and meaningful with a-grade house head Ringard. Hailing from Rennes, Brittany's biggest city, Bapiste Letertre (AKA Ringard) continues an impressive stream of hometown talent to deploy high-def club monsters on his own Dance Around 88 imprint (so-called because he was born in 1988.) "Lacrima Rossa" is his first 12" outside his own label so props to the Parisians for securing a total coup.
If you like your house sleek and steamy, the title track is for you, brimming as it is with wavy pads, subaquatic sonar bleeps and a rolling groove. "Les Balearek" offers a little emotional impact, fusing melancholic melodies with swathes of spiritual strings and red-lined percussion. The hiss and hammer of the rhythm section returns on warehouse jacker "M.S.H.", a Lobster style slice of bleep, boom and bass, before "Tromb Horn" twists the dreamy frequencies into a low slung stroll through a Thai opium den. Strung out and slammin in equal parts, this is a breath of dry ice and a blinding flash of strobe - get on it.
Patrick says: LYO score a real A&R heist here, tempting Ringard away from his Dance Around 88 imprint for a quartet of steamy house rollers. You'll love this.
