Opolopo

Axxanxxan / Axxiove Instrumentals

The second instrumental installment of these dancefloor shakers lets the focus shine on the masterful and playful production work of Opolopo. Impossible to sit still to, the producer has fast cemented a frenetic and funky sound which effortlessly traverses disco, tropical and house flavoured floors with a dexterity and pinache like no other. 

Both tracks here are insatiably grooving, heavy on the percussion and muted guitar licks; broiling things up to a frothing stew of heated disco hedonism. Fresh but transparent production mean they bang on the latest rigs but still allow the organic and human nature of the instrument playing shine through. Unbeatable stuff that all the top jocks are hammering out at the best day raves around the globe - got a real Dekmantel Selectors vibe to it. Big tip! 

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Tropical house instrumentals of a huge Opolopo number from earlier int year. Impossible not to shake a tail feather or two to these jams. Got Dekmantel Selectors written all over 'em....

Opolopo X Alafia

Axxanxxan / Axxiove

Canopy enlist Opolopo to get involved with the label's superstar Alafia. Collaborating on a new transmission, "Axxanxxan" and "Axxiove" are two addictive percussive monsters, perfectly designed to lock the dancefloor into a tribal throb. 

"Axxanxxan" has more musical elements thrown in, metallic bass, guitar chops, synth swirls and such like; making for a melting point of tropical disco carnage. "Axxiove" is a much more drum-centric affair, imparting onto the listener a hypnotic pulse of rhythm that's scorching hot. Add a few flange sweeps and modern fx sweeps and you've a real beast that'll work across genres and on most dancefloors.

Essential stuff from Canopy!

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Excellent for building up tension on the dancefloor, or utilizing over other tracks as a percussive DJ tool; these two drum-centric broilers from Opolopo and Alafia should find favour right across the DJ spectrum.
