Man Recordings have always specialized in unearthing unlikely bass music gems from South America, or at least influenced by the contemporary sounds of Brazil, Colombia and Venezuela. "Fook Me Avontade" is another gem in this mould. Sounding like a sweet, pop-flecked take on Buraka Son Sistema, its rugged rhythms combine well with the hazy vocals and chiming synthesizers. Boyfriend provide a slower, less hectic alternative take that makes more of the cheap and cheerful synth melodies, while Milangeles weighs in with a version so fast and skittish that it's almost over before you've had a chance to settle in to the Juke-ish groove. Also included is the chunkier, rave influenced original mix, which is arguably the best of the lot.
