An intriguing pairing of two Swedish heavyweights kicks off 2015 with a flourish for Trunkfunk Records. And what a start it is: the full-impact, stomping tribal sounds of Bongera.

Drawing on the expertise of the tracks two collaborators - party monster Per QX, and studio magician George Nakas - the sum of the "Bongera" parts is house music that packs a serious punch; classic in its appeal, realised for modern ears, bottom-heavy but melodically-driven, and polished with raw edges. London-based producer/DJ Per Qx is synonymous with his infamous Gutter Slut club night, a regular cacophony of electro, techno and mash up styles that has developed a feverish following around the globe. George Nakas has been the secret weapon of many of the most recognisable club classics, adding his musical flair to bonafide club hits by the likes of Stonebridge and Axwell. Together they pitch the original mix of "Bongera" towards peaktime, filling the track to the brim with dramatic drops and builds, quirky vocal wordplay, and cinematic horns and strings.

This EP comes with remixes to suit every shade of DJ. The Dub Mix distills "Bongera" down to thudding kick drum and rolling beat, with a minimalist treatment to maintain its fast forward motion. Dynamic duo Franskild rework "Bongera" with sparkling, shuffling deepness; the track becomes marked by swung beats and DIY percussion, and a unique rhythmic lilt. Trunkfunk founder NIBC rounds out the package as he does with each of his labels releases, and his rework acts like the common thread between all other versions, by utilising all of the original elements, and rearranging them over a beat that is infectioous but deeply-rooted. Bongera slo comes accompanied by bright and playful coloured artwork by Swedish artist Theodor Johansson.
