What with the robots' recent Grammy wins, "Get Lucky" continues to rule and inspire from here to Timbuktu. Now cheeky Frenchmen Minimatic applies the tune to another big musical force right now: electro-swing. In fairness though, "Get Swingy" largely eschews the electro in favour of a more rootsy and authentically jazzy romp through last summer's indestructible anthem. If you're looking for something less obvious try the slammin' soulful house of "Gonna Swing You" or even better, their breaky spaced out cover of Ram Jam's Black Betty.
We know you're not the kind of person who lets just anybody into your soul, but after one listen to Minimatic's new EP, we're pretty sure you'll make an exception for this charmer. "Let's Get Into Your Soul" sees the Parisian DJ splice a cheeky Marvin Gaye vocal with some infectious bossoul nova for some seductive results. "In Da Roots Club" recontextualises 50 Cent's killer debut with some laid back roots and "Planet Jerk" wraps things up nicely with some party-startin' vintage funky breaks.
Resense are on a roll of late with new releases coming left, right and centre. Here we have more old-meets-new-skool frivolity, with two incendiary dancefloors excursions. Mambo is certainly the order of the day here, with "My Zindi" featuring 1940s-style crooners over a tight shuffling beat. "Regulate Your Aperitif" is insanely catchy, with a cool hip-house rap delivered over a backing that recalls "My Definition Of A Boombastic Jazz Style".
Sacre bleu! Parisian 'electro-organic hop-soul' producer and DJ, Minimatic, is back with a new release. "Supermarket Freaks" is a celebratory mash-up of chunky, funky beats, perky brass and than a little Gallic funk. "Empire Of The (ChaCha) Strikes Back" is more of a laid back hip-hop number with break beats and retro 60s samples and lastly "Easy Is My Name" ends things on a loungey, cinematic high.
