MULTI CULTI

Multi Culti seasonal balance series continues with Equinox II.

The EP kicks off with a beautiful Balearic gem from Italian musician Umberto Vitiello paired up with the amazing Donato Dozzy. It’s a spellbinding journey, one sure to be cherished by Tuluminatti ‘ritual’ djs as well as authentic shamans around the world.

Ofofo flies solo on the positively-ebullient ‘unlock the future,’ striking a rare note of lightness in its sublimely ethereal groove. Instant sunshine!

Flip it over for the funky, badass bassy bounce of the mighty diegors, a name not heard enough since his glory days on early comeme. He’s back in top form and this one is an effortlessly cool slice of groove.

Next up, Multi Culti wizard Nicola Cruz delivers a breaks mix of previous cult single Aima. It’s a wiggly modular fun-fest that showcases his endless evolutionary bloom as a super-producer.

Finally, a brand new project from Brazil’s Philippi (of deewee and fatnotronic fame). Ubaruh is an anthem designed for Mexican nu-disco dancers. Pinche funky disco!

STAFF COMMENTS

Millie says: Multi Culti does it again with their second volume for the Equinox celebrations, a multitude of genres spanning from Shamanic-y cosmic disco, cool Balearic, bassy funk, house with a splash of wonky electronica. Pheeeew I *think* that covers it, basically something for everyone there.

Multi Culti conjure Calypso Cult once again with this split ep from Iñigo Vontier & Thomass Jackson. Fresh off back-to-back seasons of Tuluminati rituals, these two well-worn chug warriors of dark disco have kept Mexico dancing throughout the pandemic, maintaining a prolific release schedule on top of a world-leadingly busy calendar of gigs.

Thomass Jackson turns in a pair of wonky eyes-closed bangers with the modular-flecked ‘Big Plastic Room,’ and the restrained ecstatic power of ‘Slow Train.’ Iñigo fires back with the twerky, tribal madness of ‘Jungle Tungle’ and the meandering mushroom-inspired-madness of ‘Hipocampos.’

STAFF COMMENTS

Millie says: Cosmic sluggers and big-room tackle galore here on Multi Culti label. The return of Thomass Jackson & Inigo Vontier with the second instalment of Calypso Cult brings a percussion workout shy of 7 minutes named 'Jungle Train' and a chuggy trip aptly called 'Slow Train'.

TRACK LISTING

A1. Thomass Jackson - Big Plastic Room
A2. Thomass Jackson - Slow Train

We love Multi Culti here at Picc HQ so to see them launch a new quarterly 12" series is a mega buzz. "Solstice I" kicks us off with four rightly hyped artists contributing a track each.

Beginning this journey are some of the label’s most beloved artists. Israeli duo Red Axes provide a chakra-elevating soundtrack with their inimitable blend of psych-garage-tronica, a sun-kissed banger that signals a long-awaited return to the togetherness of the dancefloor.

Zillas On Acid turn in a robustly wiggly jam that electrifies, frazzling zaps and frenetic percussion recall the fritzy tension of the past year, a cathartic shock-treatment for traumatized dancers looking to get back to prime spine-shaking shape.

Mexico managed to stay open for the most part, and TYU seems to have not skipped a beat here, still in perfect form after breaking out as one of the hottest young producers to emerge in recent years. Dark disco, Mexi-chug, call it what you want, but the emergent genre is never better represented than here. Spooky, phosphorescent tribal dance, Tulumminati-tested and approved.

Finally, the big guy - Manfredas - whose remixes and edits have been highlight-reel material the past couple of years, delivers a long awaited original track with his requisite heavyweight swag. Wonky tunings and a chunky downtempo beat underpin Manny’s trademark masterful arrangement style, building patiently, with breakdowns that managed to wring every last drop of impact out of an odd, otherworldly assortment of sounds.


STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Hardcore shamanic rituals from the psychotropic botanists at Multi Culti. Rainforest business of the highest order - toad not included.

TRACK LISTING

A1 - Red Axes - Maztomeret
A2 - Zillas On Acid - Live From The Reptile House
B1 - Tyu - Kongaloka
B2 - Manfredas - Meshugas

The ritualistic practitioners of late night voodoo return with another cauldron of simmering hot dancefloor magick. Mystic vibrations from Mytron & Ofofo, Thomass Jackson, Barry Sunset, and the mysterious Medieval Man remind you that ‘new normal’ is not the goal, join the freaky future instead.

Suitably wigged-out and shamanic, without venturing into unlistenable waffle, these rhythm-heavy workouts combine all the entheogenic elements we love: jaws harp, tribal drums, datura-soaked electronix and witching chants. All plotted around that sweet, +/-110BPM mark for maximum plod!

No drownings, stake burnings or stonings necessary, just healing vibrations cemented into time via the physical medium of vinyl; and requiring as much integration as a breakthrough dose of 5meo-dmt. Peep!



STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: More deliriant that a broomstick to the labia, these four sonic entheogens should bridge the physical gap between this and the 5th dimension. Better consult the elders first though!

TRACK LISTING

A1. Mytron & Ofofo - Machinenhimmel
A2. Barry Sunset - Hit The Drums
B1. Thomass Jackson - Liquido En 33
B2. Medieval Man - Humble Frodo

Sascha Funke / Niklas Wandt

Kreidekreis - Inc. Alexander Arpeggio / Whodamanny Remixes

Follow-up EP for Multi Culti from this Berlin duo merging sleek Krautrock influences, decades long production experience, jazz-percussion chops and funky German vocals.

‘Kometenschweif’ will sound the most familiar to fans of Sascha Funke’s club-ready tracks, with percussive and vocal flourishes from Niklas Wandt. ‘Kreidekreis’ takes the tempo down while ramping up the trippiness, a circular journey into funk bass, synth prog, and again, a percussion masterclass.

Finally, ‘Weg Vom Leder’ sounds like a lost Falco tune, brought up to date. On the remix side, Alexander Arpeggio somehow manages to swing ‘Kreidekreis’ into a digital reggae slowburner, while Whodamanny turns Kometenschweif toward indie-kraut-wave bop.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: My favourite percussive piss-taker gets back in the ring with Sascha Funke for a very German edition of the oddball house / shamanic electronics experience. Post kraut hypnotism, commune funk and NDW chuggers on the OGs, while Alex Arpeggio and Whodamanny embrace the cosmic and leather clad on their remixes.

TRACK LISTING

A1. Kometenschweif
A2. Kreidekreis
B1. Kreidekreis (Alexander Arpeggio Remix)
B2. Kometenschweif (Whodamanny Remix) 
B3. Weg Vom Leder
