RAZOR-N-TAPE RESERVE

Razor-N-Tape bring out the big guns for their remix package of L.A based afro funk band Jungle Fire - capturing a slice of sunshine from a mesmerising far away land.

First up a re-edit of 'Firewalker' from RNT's very own JKriv, taking that live energy of Jungle Fire's expert instrumentation and channelling it into an exuberant, DJ friendly edit that will have that crowd moving like they're dancing on hot coals.

House music authoritarians Black Science Orchestra, then take on 'Culebro' and transform it into a afrobeat tinged groover. They bring the infectious bass to the foreground behind a shuffling rhythm and skilfully insert snippets of Jungle Fire's guitars and horn section to turn this into a serious, house heater.

On the B side, Brooklyn born, Medellin based producer Bosq steps up to tackle 'Village Hustle' bringing his unique blend of flavours to this melting pot of zesty goodness. Focussing on the rhythmic nature of the original and teasing in added percussive elements, Bosq's edit grows and grows into a joyous, feel good foot stomper.

Rounding off this standout remix e.p. Black Science Orchestra offer up a dubbed-out version of 'Culebro' complete with expansive pads, echoed guitars and that monstrous dubby bassline to create a dreamy Balearic gem of epic proportions.

RNT savors the last bit of summer with a deep-n-sexy offering from Nebraska on the 'Usin' Me" single, out now on the Razor-N-Tape Reserve imprint. Londoner Ali Gibbs tweaks a soulful sample with signature finesse; part disco, part house…all vibes!

Aided and abetted by an electro-funk 808-heavy remix from Lovebirds, a dark and stormy take by The Revenge, and a standout slow-burning mix from DJ Nature, we can say for certain you'll be "Usin'" this record, indeed.

Veteran NYC producer and DFA regular Juan MacLean hops on the RNT wagon for a rolling EP of drum-machine driven grooves for the Reserve sub-imprint. The record starts with the peak-time stomper "Fine Time", building exquisite tension and release through looped and filtered samples, and then moves on to the boogie-infused swing of "Don't Stop For Nothing".

"Everybody Clap" leads off side B with a soulful and string-laden vocal over a bouncing hi-hat-focused house arrangement, and the EP closes out on the dubbier tip with the eponymous "Panic In Fort Greene Park", a synthy and smooth slow burner. All around beautifully produced and eminently playable, Señor Maclean has made himself a most welcome addition to the Razor-N-Tape family with this dynamic EP.

Magic In Threes

Work Tapes EP - Inc. Fouk / Patchworks / Lay-Far Remixes

Nashville's dusty funkateers Magic In Threes return to RNT Reserve with a triptych of low-strung grooves, each complimented by a superlative remix. "Chupa Cabra", a sweet soulful joint, is reimagined as a devilishly pulsating and funky burner by RNT mainstays FOUK on their remix. Parisian Patchworks takes the 70s-cop-show funk of "Work Tapes" straight to Nigeria with a beautifully crafted highlife remix. Finally there's "Come On Down", reminiscent of classic Donald Byrd in the Larry Mizell days, which is beefed up and readied for the dance floor by analog wizard Lay-Far. A lovely package for listening, or bumping!
