After Slap In The Bass – Egypt EP No Brainer Records drop their next bomb. Malente and Jay Robinson formed this “Klezzic” EP. Inspired by some Balkan folklore I guess. The EP comes with remixes from Worthy, Mikix the Cat, Swick and Poupon! It’s also the second part of the video trilogy “Sleight Of Hand” and to know what’s about watch here the first part!
Malente & Jay Robinson have never met in real life. More peculiar still: They don’t even switch on the video mode in Skype and mostly just stick to the chat. I think that might be because the music they make is so outrageously dangerous.
Their team debut ‘Do Your Head In’ on Southern Fried dates back to early 2010, but just a few weeks ago they released ‘Cherry Pop’ on Fat! Records with Yo! Majesty on vocals. Now they drop their ‘Klezzic’ on Malente’s very own No Brainer Records.
Caution. The original has a stirring effect. With it’s haunting hyperactive clarinet loop over a UK funky influenced rhythm this will get you all agitated. Believe me, you can’t sit this one out.
Fortunately the remix by Poupon (Dub Noir), Canada’s latest house sensation, calms us down a bit and gets our bodies in a nice relentless groove. Addictive nonetheless.
San Fran’s very own Worthy (Anabetic / Dirtybird) delivers a real stripped down rumpshaker. Dangerously sexy and seductive.
And be warned about the Mikix The Cat (Trouble & Bass) take on Klezzic. It’s psychoactive. Drags you in with the clarinet loop like the Sirens of Titan and then, once it’s got to you there’s no escape.
The Swick (No Brainer Records) rework is not that dangerous if you are already into heavy drinking. If so, you’ll just save the money for your alcohol and you can go directly into fist pumping mode.
‘Detonation Dub’, the second original track of this package is as explosive as it sounds and it will kill you if you haven’t already handed over your life to one of the previous sonar hazards.
Andy George “Loving the sound of this, could be big for Ibiza!”
Savage Skulls “This is Swick!”
Greenmoney “Great work!”
Camel “Worthy Remix is defintiely the one for me! Will play it!”
Giga Turner “You guys are always on FIRE! loving the whole release!”
Neoteric “What a lineup! hard to pick but Poupon is best for my sets – love the Original and Worthy remixes too! Another BIG one from No Brainer!”
My personal favourites are “Detonation Dub” and the Mikix The Cat remix! The Ep drops at 1st July on No Brainer Records! So let’s go to their BEATPORT and buy your favourite!
