Another week another razor 12"! Seriously, this label seems unstoppable with their creations. Are they worth it though? You be the judge!
I have never come across a Felipe Gordon remix, edit or production so this is my first encounter and it is not a bad one. Commencing proceedings is 'Shakala', an afrobeat cum latin with serious house beats that brings Fela / Femi Kuti to mind straight away. Seriously good and will be a clear invitation to the dancefloor.
On the flip you get 'Los Bareteros', a funky salsa exercise, again underpinned by a house beat that quantizes the original bits and makes it extremely dancefloor-friendly.
To finish it all off - and to not leave stone unturned regarding Afrro-Caribbean music genres - Felipe gives us an outstanding Cumbia-inflected that goes hand in hand with the margarita you will be ordering at the bar. This 12" is the perfect soundtrack.
