Quickly getting into the thick of the action for the new year, Clarisse welcome the dancefloor don of Dos Hermanas, Juan Carlos Cruz Lopez aka Wade. The Spaniard has a diary already brimming with global dates for 2016, with spots at Sankeys Tribal Sessions in Manchester and this years Miami Winter Music Conference at the top of the list. Wades down-low throbs have peppered Beatports top 100 with the labels Lost Records and Suara (see the Eminem-sampling Collapsed Jam) among his stops en route, and have racked up recognition from Richie Hawtin, Loco Dice, Luciano and Davide Squillace.
Where push comes to shove and your bar-side stool needs evacuating, Retrojack is laden with bumpy, bubble-bursting beats moving to the image of bricks in a washing machine rebounding off a trampoline. Making bodies crunch and lunge, plenty of rap riffin spices up the party further with old skool hip-house in mind covering both the block and beach house, and theres never gonna be anything wrong with a breakdown that winds up and sounds off an air-raid siren before starting all over.
Lowering the weight of the kick drum takes the cunning funkiness of Spined to a temple of tribal house. With Wade showing hes very much for letting the tempo and tempo alone do all the talking, Spined would be a dancefloor dominator spoken of with hushed reverence were it not spluttered over by a massive rave hoover and ringing synths going heavy on the panic button. A quicker-stepping marching band you couldnt wish for, with Wades orchestrating a left-right-left sequence like a big bad wolf thatll quickly have you throwing off winter hats and gloves.
