About this item
THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2019 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.
For those whose fingers are far from the pulse, A Man Called Adam blew us away with the release of their first album since 1998, rekindling that Balearic, emotional, pop-not-pop feel they are famous for over 11 sumptuous tracks. Here they get into the RSD swing with a sampler 12" featuring three remixes, one from the band themselves, the others from Brazil's Carrot Green and Norwegian hero Prins Thomas. It's the Full Pupp boss who starts this party, transforming the already ace "Paul At The Disco" into one of his sprawling fireside jams. More mushrooms than MDMA, this trippy transformation makes adept use of the fx units, flips out with spacey synths (think his Jape remix) and keeps on grooving. Next up Carrot Green rocks the acid disco with his version of "Ou Pas", pairing a gurgling acid line with a thick synth bass and those almost Bollywood vocal motifs. Deep disco house for the carnival crowd. Finally, A Man Called Adam take to the desk for their own "Too Much" dub of title track "Farmarama", cutting the vocal to a hypnotic mantra and reinforcing their low slung arrangement into a jazzy house bomb a la Versatile.
