Back in late 2008 I brought you a winter sampler from Silicone Soul's Darkroom Dubs label that featured a number of tracks from upcoming releases. One of them, 'Mandan' and without doubt the most popular of the package came from Richard Rotfuß... aka Liapin.

Liapin, together with Eduard Hartter and Markus Liefke aka Liefko, are German trio Afrilounge. 2002 saw them begin their journey together, but it was with their 2004 Get Physical release 'The Dude' that they really announced their arrival. The success of the release saw them rewarded with the task of remixing M.A.N.D.Y.'s seminal classic 'Body Language'. Together the trio have released and remixed for a number of labels, including the likes of Connaisseur, 8Bit, Playmate, Systematic and Poker Flat.

2008 has seen Liapin branching out and delivering killer cuts himself. Solo projects have come on Connaisseur, Genowefa and Connect Four and now, after bringing you the lead track on the winter sampler, I am happy to be able to bring you the full... Mandan E.P.

Title track 'Mandan' is a huge groove-fest. Dubby bassline, cheeky vocal sample and delicate tom-toms make for a wicked number that has already picked up a host of big name support from guys including, Laurent Garnier, Dennis Ferrer, Steve Bug, DJ Hell, Agnes, Charles Webster and many more...

So time for the new additions, and they really do not come much better. Teaming back up with his boys, Afrilounge take 'Mandan' even deeper with their 'Afrilounge In Your Soul Dub'. Dubbing things out further, with hints of Djembe drums and bubbling effects, this really is a smokers delight. Soulful to the end.

Rounding out the package is a real gem from Liapin. 'Call It Deep', as the title explains, does delve in that direction, yet has a demon kick, that takes hold. Infectiously locking on, this track will have you grinding your way across the floor with a gangsta'S swagger. Stunning!

Overall, I think you will be hard pushed to find a finer promo release in your inbox this weekend. Liapin and the Afrilounge boys are true masters of their craft.... Get down, and get funky!
