There's no doubting the influence of post-dubstep, which has extended its reach to this remix package of Haaksman's "Lemba". The Round Table Knights version of the German producer's track brings this approach to the fore: over a tight stepping rhythm that could be mistaken for a Martyn jam, they lay down the seductive, slightly slurred French vocal. Meanwhile, the DZC Deejays also wear this influence openly.
However, on this occasion the drums are organic and rumbling rather than tight and precision-fixated and the vocal appears to have transformed from a sultry French tone to an upbeat Spanish narrative - something that futuristic rhythms have nothing to do with.
It may not be the house community's most unique idea and has been around since the dawn of the form, but when done properly, the fusion of vocals and electronic grooves sounds inspirational. Like Ricardo Villalobos, it sounds like Daniel Haaksman has raided a traditional music archive for the atmospheric, playful vocals that prevail on Lemba. Coupled with organic drums, it is evocative and infectious yet also groovy and DJ-friendly. There is an instrumental version included, which features tight claps and is underpinned by a gently spiralling acid line, but it's the original, in all its rambling, sprawling glory that impresses the most.
