Mr Raoul K kept this track a long time in his drawer. He always felt that something was missing. And he didn't want to put out a track he wasn't feeling comfortable with. During a visit of Kuniyuki in Mr Raoul K's studio, he played the track to him. After Kuniyuki proposed some new ideas, they decided to finish the track and release under their new alias Double K... They have come up with an atmospheric sixteen minute journey with constantly changing atmosphere. Starting off softly, almost tiptoe-ing 'Esprit De La Jungle' begins an expedition into the inner jungle. Accompanied by Kuniyuki's subtle flute and keyboards and graced with Wiltrud Weber's awesome vocals, the track provides constantly changes its mood and is full of surpises. Expect the unexpected after every turn. Mr Raoul K's beats blend in very slowly and do not take over until the very end. Close your eyes on the dancefloor and find yourself exploring the secrets of the unknown, feeling the real Esprit Of The Jungle....

Club Of Jacks digs deep here to serve up some classic tracks from the archive that have not been available on vinyl before. First up is UKG royalty Jeremy Sylvester with a remix of 'Waiting For You' that is pure party. The drums and bass bounce and plunge low with sustained chords and a honeyed vocal getting the vibes going. A deeper, dubbier and more laid back but still emotive 23 Remix follows then Plastik People boss Marc Cotterell serves up a soulful remix of 'All That Shaking' that is full of steamy sax and sunny day goodness. A Club of Jacks 23 Refix brings a deep vibe to close a superb EP.
Bengoa's Athens-based-label B2 Recordings has impressed over its first nine releases. The 10th is another fine one to mark the mini-milestone and it comes from Lex, who was last on the label a couple of years ago. His star has only continued to rise since then with fresh beats on the likes of Samosa and Leng and now his brilliant disco house fusions find more new heights with 'Fast Jags.' This is a cosmic workout that slowly builds on nice loose drums with astral pads circling around you and keys withering in sci-fi fashion. Bengoa offers up a raw edit that brings some deeper jazz keys and tumbling bongos and Felipe Gordon's Deep Funk remix ups the house vibes with a nice thumping groove.
Stroom illuminate the trippier side of Belgian legend Benjamin Lew with highlights of his 1982 album with Tuxedomoon’s Steven Brown, plus a rare compilation cut.‘Bamako Ou Ailleurs’ essentially focuses on three gems from Lew’s 1982 album for Crammed Discs ‘Douzième Journée: La Verbe, la Parure, L’Amour’, which is co-credited with production and input not only from Steven Brown (Tuxedomoon) but also Crammed Disc co-founder Marc Hollander aka Aksak Maboul. All three tracks are given more vinyl wriggle room than ever before, priming the likes of his brilliant, snake charming title cut (coincidentally a highlight of Jon K’s ‘Loukanikos Dance’ mixtape) for the DJs, along with bass-heavy, spectral sashay of ‘Il, les quitta a l’aube’ and the unmissable, swingeing West African drum pressure of ‘Dans Le Jardin’, while the chiffon drift of ‘A la recherché de B.’ is isolated from 1984’s ‘Made To Measure Vol.1’ compilation and used to elegantly even the EP out.For any Belg-o-philes, both budding or long-in-the-tooth, this stuff is golden.
For all its eerie qualities as a work of music, King Midas Sound's Waiting for You was just as striking in spatial terms-- bass throbs, snare hits, and voices, usually broodingly quiet or tautly fretful, reverberating in sonic dub chambers that practically dwarfed them a thousandfold. With all that room, there's plenty of scope to rebuild things, rearrange the elements, and see how the angles of all those deep echoes change. Dabrye's 2008 chrome-and-neon g-funk remix of "One Ting" was one of the earliest reinterpretations of Kevin Martin and Roger Robinson's collaborative efforts, and possibly the best to date. But it also shared space on the "Cool Out" b-side with Flying Lotus' twitchy, boiling-water mutation of "Lost"-- a remix just as eager to coax out the ghostly elements of Robinson's voice, but approaching it more like a counterpoint than a complement.
Nice trippy house cuts from one of the finest Berliner diggers and music lovers !
