Brooklyn-based production pals JKriv and Lou Teti join forces once again, here delivering an effortlessly casual chunk of typically NYC slacker disco. As with most of their recent work, "Elisco" carefully combines great live elements - sleepy vocals, guitars, keys and such - with a nagging boogie bassline and touchy-feely synth touches. It could certainly be described as Balearic. Remix-wise, there's plenty to get stuck into, from the low-slung bass and shiny electrofunk synths of Alphabet City's shimmering take to Sleazy McQueen's eccentric yacht rock re-wiring. There's also a nice hypnotic, vocal-heavy excursion from Space Ranger that's well worth a listen.
