For the latest release on his fast-improving Audaz imprint, Alkalino has turned to fellow Portugese producer Pedro Faria. "What I Want" sits somewhere between fluid, deep-tech house, Crosstown Rebels-ish cocaine house (check the wonky vocal) and '90s garage revivalism - all tactile grooves, topsy-turvy melodies and distant piano riffs. Alkalino delivers a more straightforward shuffling deep house tweak, while Miguel Matoz injects some percussive energy on his remix. The most interesting track of all, though, is bonus cut "Nicotine" - a wobbly, bass-heavy trip into 21st century jazz-house that should appeal to the Hypercolour generation.
