Ray Okpara?s Ama Recordings label rolling steady beats again with their italian
friends who fired up AMA in style on its first release. Again: Paul's Boutique
mastermind Martini and his partner in crime, Paul C. deliver fervently!
The Dragon EP on vinyl offers 2 new tracks, a remix from the man Okpara himself ?
and a bonus track for digital jocks. Relentles and rolling, AMA's 8th installment starts with ?Dragon?. A stamina groove, gripping from beginning to end. The percussive drive builds and builds and never ceases to make u feel high. The bassdrive's slightly discoid atmosphere and atmo loops slowly turn into what is
a filtered psychedelic trip in his own rights. No escape when this Dragon flies in!
?Turn On? playfully cites Disco and hiphop elements without losing it's heavy, down to earth groove. Uplifting vocal bits and an intense one break manner make this a club track that aims succesfully at winding hips and shuffling feet. Not to speak of those happyily nodding heads we found up and down the floors on which we tested this banger bearing sweetest oblivion!
AMA head honcho Okpara strips down the funk on his ?Turn On? remix. The beat's
elements become heavier, accompanied by some dark and gripping web underneath the original's loop. Where once there was more of a disco feel, here's a dose of tribal afro drive that is heavily demanding. This is a call to groove, not an offer!
?48 Crash? is another bad ass beat with a grinding bassline you can't possibly stop.
Rollin' like a damn train, the bonus digital track of this vinyl release has the darkest
atmosphere of the 3 tracks. Neverthelesse it is nothing less than pure
