DISCOS CAPABLANCA

If you heard our own Patch playing out last year, the chances are you heard him drop Lipelis' dub mix of Capablanca's "Lap Dance", a fierce and ferocious bit of tape-y tonk from the previous 12". Now we have the third and final instalment of the 'Lap Top Less Dance' trilogy, featuring an outersphere collab between Lipelis and Capablanca, a deep and freaky Tiago remix, and a stomping dancefloor rework by Odopt. 
This set starts with Capablanca and Lipelis going utterly astral with the slow and syrupy "Top Top Top", a twisted disco dub with plenty of pattering percussion, Space Echo abuse and reel to reel fuckery. If you imagine playing the drum loop from "Knock On Wood" through a broken tape player, then opening the fridge portal to Zuul before uniting the trinity of gremlin, water and synth, and you'll be in the same galaxy as this jam. Inter / Outerzona boss Tiago takes the wheel next, working "Lap Dance" into an entirely psychedelic discoid freakshow with neat congas, weird fx and a grunting bassline. Last but not least, Born Free regular Odopt turns in a mind-mulching industrial version of "Lap Top Less Dance", hinting at acid, Borft weirdness and strange sampledelia.

Patrick says: I attained mega buzz from the Lipelis remix off the previous Capablanca 12", so to see the duo behind the controls together was pretty pretty good. They serve a fine starter of slow and sludgy syrup before Tiago gets into his psychedelic disco and Odopt embraces the industrial funk.

Is there another DJ out there like Loud-E? The guy operates in his own universe, soaring through absurdly obscure dance floor records and flipping them with his dusty, demented and wildly psychedelic sound. This contribution to Discos Capablanca is no exception, kicking off with the sequined disco stomp of "Get Down On Me", a Soul Train moment viewed through a thick fuzz of radio static from a UFO in high orbit. In fact, as the hot brass, celestial arps and breathy vocal twist in on themselves, it seems we've taken residence in an alien brain which can't quite make sense of our human noises. Next up "Marathon", my all time favourite former chocolate bar and new wormhole funk anthem. The nuanced percussion brings an organic funk to the party, while that gnarly synth sequences serves as gut loosening bass and face melting riff, locking us in for the mind melding prowess of that proggy lead line. If you've ever had one too many Jean-Michel Jarres and stumbled into the topless bar, you know what this sounds like. Finally we freak it to "Yeah Clavilove", a low slung and sleazy dancer centered on that timeless ribbet of the clavinet. Right at the sweet spot between funk, soul and AOR, this strange and brilliant jam will do it for Balearic beards and Cosmic explorers alike - believe the hype!

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Loud-E moves another couple of places up my all-time favourite editors here with a mindblowing three tracker of whacked out space disco, intergalactic sleaze and Balearic funk - keeping it psychedelic throughout.
