RAZOR-N-TAPE

Razor-N-Tape welcome hometown hero Danny Krivit into their stable of editors with a 2-track EP that sources a pair of vibes from the catalog of the ubiquitous "Q."

"Stuff" begins with a mysteriously looped and reverbed-out saxophone sample, building perfectly toward an eventual explosion of soulful horn stabs and vocals over a percolating rhythm section, in classic Q style.

"The Story" tells a mellower yet mesmerizing tale, with its lush string arrangement and artful groove, perfect for those early warmups or late-night comedowns. A true living legend of NYC's rich DJ history, Danny dug deep into his personal cache of edit weapons for this very special record. Absolutely essential!

Razor n Tape plough on, producing solid collections of edits with the listener in mind at all times. Classy and fruitful on the dancefloor. 

On this instalment you get four electrifying edits from London & Paris based Mytron & Ofofo on the unstoppable Razor-N-Tape. 'Beach Buggy' goes full throttle from the get go with a conga fuelled, disco jam before the clock strikes twelve and 'Midnight Drive' offers up a low slung, late-night boogie cruise.

On the flip side dreamy chords, soulful sweet nothings and synthesizer swells are the order of the day for 'Eli's Coming', leaving 'Capricorn' to close out the e.p. with a bass heavy, intergalactic chugger. Razor-N-Tape can do no wrong - snap up on sight! Top quality and they do not get repressed.

Sil says: I can say confidently that this is one of my favourite re-edit labels. The quality just gets better with every release. They offer you variety and originality going the extra mile to unearth diamonds you do not find anywhere else - or at least you do not have to pay an extortionate price for it. You get a selection of masterfully crafted edits that range from straight disco to more psychedelic off the beaten track rarities. Do not miss out on this one.

Just in time for summer, RNT drops a 3-tracker of tropical heat from Brazilian outfit Balako. Although relative newcomers, their production prowess has been known to their Rio de Janeiro musical community and beyond for some time, and is on full display here. The A-side showcases their knack for modernizing the canonical Brazilian MPB sound, from the deceptively demonic build of "Batuque", to the acidic-leaning lilt of "Deixa Acontecer". The flip side takes a hard turn left of field with "Honey Honey Honey", a 9 minute opus of Afro-Brazilian disco insanity, primed for those balmy summertime roof parties.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Beguiling, mysterious and enchanted additions to the new disco / nu cosmic camps here. RIYL: Acid Arab, Ptaki, Sputnik or Black Bones.

Patrick Gibin Aka TwICE

Patrick Gibin Aka TwICE Edits

TwICE aka Patrick Gibin established himself as a selector to be reckoned with through his Black Aroma re-edit series, and now he brings his penchant for deep cuts and dusty reworks to the RNT catalog. Stretching over the A-side is "Sunrise", a bouncy sunny synthy affair, seemingly made for summer rooftops and pool parties. On the flip, "Searching" updates a woke soulful 70s anthem, and "Take Flights" loops a boogie instrumental with hypnotic simplicity. Re-edits done proper.

Glitter ball massive! Razor N Tape return with more ruckus as Mating Ritual Recs chief Matin Hayes comes correct with four glitzy numbers for the modern discotheques. Leaning a bit more toward up-tempo material than his previous RNT EP, "Turn You On" does indeed burn relentlessly hot, while "Love Shine" cruises along, alternating between an infectious electric piano vamp and driving percussion. "Easy Come Easy Go" strikes an optimistic and orchestral tone, sending us blissfully into space, and then "Tiff" rounds out the EP with it's slow and soulful lilt. Surely big with the Homoelectric and Horse Meat Disco camps, not to mention big disco spinners Al Kent and Mark Grusane. Top stuff!
