For the first Cueca Recordings release it had to be a special one. Co-owner Matt McLarrie was at the BPM festival in Mexico and took field recordings of a flamingo pond that was in his hotel. It was only fitting that those recordings were used to create the first single 'Flamingo Hotel'. The vocals you hear are from Matt himself which makes this track extra special. On his return Matt and production partner/co-owner Jonathan David decided to turn these samples into a launching track for the label. Intense atmosphere and jungle sounds run throughout the track as a driving bass completes this groovy, organic and tribal story of a journey in a Mexican jungle.
We are incredibly excited to have one of our favourite producers Hauswerks on the remix. He has released on todays biggest labels including Moon Harbour, Hot Creations and Viva Music. In his interpretation of the original mix, he has taken the main jungle theme and turned it into a chunkier sub bass laden vibe that has became a signature of his sound. The random drum fills, clever use of the vocal parts and highlighting of the live flamingo sounds has taken this release from the jungle to the clubs.
We really hope you feel this release as much as we do in celebration of the launch of Cueca Recordings.
