Elektric Dancin' (Robot Soul Göteborg mix) - (7:00) 120 BPM
If you just listened to the first minute of the lead cut (the Acid Dub of "Elektric Dancin"), you'd be forgiven for thinking that it was some kind of unlikely homage to the soundtrack of a long-lost Commodore 64 platform game. Persevere, though, and you'll find a strange but surprisingly effective combination of piano house and ragging acid. The "Stripped Mix" moves further towards Balearic piano house territory, all ascending electronic melodies, analogue bass and unfussy beats. The Robot Soul remix, meanwhile, sounds like a slightly pumped up version of the "Stripped Mix" - as if it had been down the gym for some hardcore bench pressing action.
Nouveau Balearic peddlers The Project Club are back for a split EP with Twisted Tongue in order to prolong the summer vibes...and we're not complaining! First up, the former deliver their trademark 'dreamy guitar' and soothing beats while enlisting the emotive vocals of Johanna Lee. Twisted Tongue's "Jammin For Sojka" follows with arpeggiated bleeps, an electro-house bassline, North African-style percussion and self-empowering lyrics. Both acts collide too on Project Club's soulful and sublime remix of "The Full Sentence". Chillout never sounded so good!
