Here with one of Clarisses leading vibe stylists in Yvan Genkins, who has done much to help Clarisse tot up its milestone, Afro Call chugs like a non-stop cross-country train with an infinite tank of gas, full of thirsty clubbers ready for fiesta. Full of pots and pans percussion taking it to the streets, the duo provide an authentic open air feel bound to create one long human traffic jam, its pistons greased with the vocal echoes of classic chanters such as the Gypsymens Babarabatiri.
Secondcity is Rowan Harrington, who comes to the party with Chicago in his blood, an Ibizan residency at Sankeys Tribal Sessions to his name, and already knowing a thing or two about the Clarisse brand from remixing label boss Mendo's Magic this year. Not to mention a rework of Carl Cox, collaborating with chart-topper Route94 and the small matter of his goodtime piano groover I Wanna Feel blowing away 2014.
His remix of Afro Call manages to be both deep and flexible, making splashes with a bassline both flowing and muddy. Fast-paced yet always in control as if hes skimming through a foam party, he carries over the originals eyes-on-the-prize vibe and turns the pattering of skins throughout into a bubbly lather, roaring into a finale that ups the Samba-tinted shimmying in a jiffy.
