FAZE ACTION

Faze Action return with the 3rd instalment of their 4 part series featuring Zeke Manyika. "Sununguka", sung in Zeke's native Shona, is literally translated to mean, "To unravel oneself and unlock yourself". It's set over an infectious reggae, boogie rhythm, with an early proto house feel. Featuring backing vocals from Sharon Manyika and heavenly keyboard solos from Rob Lee, this EP is set to take us into summer and beyond.A
The package comes with a stunning remix from Alan Dixon who has been lighting up dance floors with his releases on Running Back and more. Here he turns the original into an Italo/electronic Aend of night classics, managing to seamlessly Amerge Zeke's African vocals with a serious bass line, ahead of the curve, contempory production whilst placing the release firmly in the credible main room department.
On A2 we have Rwendo where Zeke really stretches his songwriting skills as the whole track manages to fuse a variety of rhythms together to create a beautiful downtempo masterpiece. Finishing off we have the "Special Extended Dub Mix" which strips back the original and turns it into a balearic house gem made for the summer ahead.

Rudy (aka Robin Lee from Faze Action) makes a welcome return on Faze Action Recordings, taking in the atmosphere of sunnier climes. The title track's opening cascades and swirling synths soon fall into an easy Balearic groove, while singing melodies, exotic marimbas and chugging synth bass conjure scenes of Compass Point on holiday in St Tropez. The hypnotic tones of analogue arpeggios and haunting synth solos invoke the "Sky Goddess" on the A2 before we head back down to earth for B1's invitation to sail down the "Shimmering Coast". A relaxed guitar groove and gleaming keyboard flourishes are beautifully underpinned by a stunning 80s sounding bass line. Dropping anchor at "Fortune Lagoon", we are treated to some of Rudy's personally designed analogue keyboard sounds, which mange to challenge yet retain tropical warmth. Finally live chorus bass introduces us to "Body Wave" which manages to fuse easy French disco with jazzy Fender Rhodes hooks. "By Nature" is a reflection of white washed houses, palm trees, refreshing coastal beaches and yacht parties. Don't forget your sunglasses and tanning oil!

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Faze Action's Robin Lee dons his Rudy's Midnight Machine alias to take us for a trip to the tropics across five Balearic disco bombs. Proper Compass Point in the Med stylings found within.
