The first of this new package is the Mr Marvin Hammond Groove (Too Many Thomas Edit). Its a slowly percolating, pad laced Balearic daydream that eventually gets underpinned by a slow and bulbous kick drum as icy neon melodies drift about above. Late on some hi hats add to the rhythm, couching the whole thing in a deep house framework that looks to the stars.
Next, Morenas Cuando Brilla La Luna (Polyglot Edit) is all watery to start, wooden sounding percussion from xylophones to wind chimes seem to hang in the air above a gentle tumble of tropical bongos. Its lush and escapist and builds with a restrained minimalism of the sort perfect for opening any set.
Sunset Village Inc. So Real (Ultradubabbestia Edit) is pure warehouse vibes right from the off. Raw as you like hi hats tear apart big thick kicks, grid iron synths straight from a Gerry Read record slam down each bar and a rave making ooh vocal insight a full on dancing frenzy that gets all the more intense when a bassline straight from 88 billows into the mix.
Now full hitting its stride, there are plenty more gems on the way in this series so stay tuned!
