In its original form, Major Notes' "Abeka Lapaz Dance" is a pretty straightforward, tropical-tinged UK funky roller with more than a hint of "Township Funk" about its bleep melodies and swinging percussion. The remixes, though, take it in two wildly different directions. First, TemaGuy breaks up the beats on a garage-flavoured excursion that wisely keeps the original's bold, chiming melodies to the fore. DJ Eastwood, meanwhile, somehow manages to inject the original with a huge dose of rave-itus. There are wobbly rave riffs, skittering, Major Lazer style drums, fuzzy electronic noises and those melodies. The result is pretty darn tasty.
