Kiko is Christophe Dallaca, he of the Hot Banana and Signature by Kiko labels and with a release catalogue approaching close to twenty years long including cuts on International Deejay Gigolo and Global Underground. Its a collection almost as old as the emergent Kévin Brottes aka Spencer K aka Lift Butterfly, who resumes a partnership that turned everything to Gold on last years Balearic-to-basement frontrunner for Bla Bla Records, and the tech-n-tribal emissions of the Raw Gaz EP on Bouq.
Rondo, shaped by fervently snippy beats and percussion elongating into a tribal bumper, is one for putting drinks down and getting your glass-holding hands aloft...assuming youre prepared to have your ribs dug by whats an out and out bustle swinging a stopwatch at you. Got the juice? Can you take on the dramatic builds that sweep across, yet disappear back into the sun? A true dancefloor disciplinarian that by the same means could just easily bask in the middle of a Mardi Gras traffic jam.
The remix from fellow French force Oxia him and Kiko go way back from 95s Parametres draws on insistent bass, naggingly magnetic rhythms, percussive ping-pong, and a general air of discrete stylishness and funked up brawn that could undoubtedly keep moving through the week without even thinking about heading to bed. Like its predecessor, its in a party mood but is as quick to shoot you daggers should you dare think about looking for the exit.
