LES YEUX ORANGE

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.

Comprised of Polish duo Kruczynski and Brocki, Earth Trax & Newborn Jr. return after some dope deep house recently for Rhythm Section Int'l. For Les Yeux Orange, here they deliver four sublime cuts on the dusty and retro tip. Starting off with the chunky, squelchy analogue grit of "Hypnosis" which does exactly what it says on the tin with its roaring/delay drenched basslines and spangling FM tones. Next up "Mirage" is like a much more lo-fi version of MCDE and Marcus Worgull's ambient balearica as Vermont. The sun bleached vibes continue on the flip, with the somewhat Sueno Latino sounding "Just In Time" by Newborn Jr until we are treated to one more gorgeous and evocative dancefloor experiment in the form of "Nemesis" by Earth Trax: who also flies solo for this offering. Following up some stellar releases by Wav Fuzz and n.stal, this Parisian label is off to a flying start and we're keen to hear what they have in store for us next!

Those fine folks from the mighty Les Yeux Orange continue to show off maximum A&R chops, signing up rising stars Mytron & Ofofo for a fresh five tracker of unconventional dance floor business. Brimming with that fine fusion approach the duo delivered on their Bordello and Multi Culti releases, Topography is a psychedelic journey through the groove, pausing for stopovers in rainforest rhythm, intergalactic electro and otherworldly Afro-house. Our voyage gets underway via the exotic shuffle of a South American rhythm, DX7 flute sound and jangling guitar of "According To The Map", a dreamy new age dancer in the vein of Tri Atma & Gyan Nishabda's "Microcosmos". Next up, the slow and slewed "Space Co-ordinator" offers us a tripped out wormhole to fellow cosmic dancers Sordid Sound System, Dazion and Bolis Pupul. Over on the flip "Cumbala Hill Chalet" pairs boogie bass with polyrhythmic percussion and nimble lead lines, arriving at a sound not dissimilar to Metro Area on a trek. The rainforest rhythms continue on "Ancient Meteorological Engineeering Methods", a fusion of space disco swells, Italo bass and rattling percussion which raises the tension bar by bar. Finally, "Constant Spring" soothes the weary dance floor with  rubberised bass and warming pads - green house at its finest. 

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Mytron & Ofofo meet Les Yeux Orange for a another instalment of dance floor excitement. There’s nary a mis-step on here, but I’d recommend the percolating squelch of ‘Space Coordinator’ or the majestic ‘According To The Map’, an alternate score to ‘The Mysterious Cities Of Gold’.
