The iconic Is It Balearic heads to the slightly less iconic - in Balearic terms - West Midlands to retrieve this great EP of electric dance effort gems from Wrekin Havoc. 'Camino' is a loose, melody-rich sound with silvery drums and real nostalgia, then 'Moon Dance' it's a more laidback and zoned out sonic daydream for lazy and sunny afternoons by the pool. There is an electro vibe to 'RLTW' which is a reworking of a Christopher Cross Yacht classic then a T Kurt Remix reworks it into a boogie banger. Another varied and vital EP of grown up dance sounds.


Mine says: Ooooff, Wrekin Havoc can do now wrong. Here they join forces with Is It Balearic to serve up 4 ultra smooth yet moody disco and boogie cuts. Insert fire emoji!


Moon Dance
RLTW (feat Gemima Gallier)
RLTW (T Kutt Version Warehouse)

The Havoc guys have been on an enforced hibernation through the winter due to a lurgy that had been affecting the planet. They have remained in the cave throughout this time huddling up to keep warm and exploring what had become their home away from home for months on end. One night, whilst lighting a fire, trying to find motivation for the next release (basket weaving had lost its appeal) they spotted a glint across the way – On further inspection, it was a small bottle and had a label of sorts – It looked to be medicine or smelling salts – Liquid Gold. Curious creatures they are they all took a long good sniff of this elixir. And just like that, they rummaged around the records stacked in the corner put some more coal in the old computer and began their work.

Soon the A-Side of the new EP was born. Most certainly a step up in the BPM from the previous A-Side off EP1. A1 kicks off with a Germanic Proto Throb Job, that's sure to cause errr...Havoc on the dance floor. Whilst A2 is a Bassline Driven, Reconstructed Austrian Euro Pop Monster. One for late-night Discos.

After a while they had stopped sweating, hearts had stopped beating quite so quick. Whilst the creative juices were flowing a few more records were dug out and a log put on the fire and a cup of fungus juice imbibed. B2 came rattling out the speakers in no time at all in all its chugging glory, the vocals take in a nod to god after the devil has done his dirty work.

At this point, the sun was starting to peek through the mouth of the cave and a new day was upon them. One last record had been found, earlier, that was decided would work at this time, actually after consideration, any damn time... B2 Is like a familiar Balearic Back rub with pop-infused French vocals and beats for days...So now EP2 is complete. Back out into the world our intrepid or is it tepid threesome went... Let's only hope their wives haven't left them after all this time locked away.

In what must be one of the most sought after edits 12" we've had in for some time, Wrekin Havoc announce their arrival on the scene with the in-demand "Playing With Fire EP". Three friends - collectors and diggers - based somewhere around Birmingham and finding mutual appreciation at a mushroom fuelled romp somewhere around the boarders.

On this first release, they extend and buff-up some quite under-the-radar source material - leaving much of the original vibe intact. Three bonafide Euro chuggers are the main dish. Primed for early doors / early morning, although the cosmic and exotic flavours will lend themselves to alternative plays right across the board. Final track "Catch Me If You Can" is aimed at that perfect Balearic sunrise, bringing optimism for the day ahead atop of rising strings, emotive guitar picks and breath taking chord progression. You can almost smell the sea air!

Amazing stuff from this emergent firm - RIYL: Talking Drums, DJ Harvey, Ruf Kutz, Andi Hanley, Neil Diablo etc etc. Limited copies too so don't dilly dally.

Oh! And apparently the trio are donating any profits from the record to charity - so that's another reason to love 'em!
