San Fran man Tal M Klein could be described as a "serial collaborator". Here he offers up two more fine collaborations, one with fast-rising Soundcloud stars Irregular Disco Workers, and the other with regular muse Anthony Mansfield. "Slow Down", his showdown with the Irregular Disco Workers, is pleasingly Balearic; a shuffling, hands-aloft combination of slo-mo acid tweakery, drifting Harmonicas and piano house goodness. Think early Fila Brazilia meets Slow to Speak, and you're close. "Polk Street Stumblin", meanwhile, covers familiar Mansfield/Klein ground, offering a druggy analogue groove overlaid with weird noises and a killer double bass sample.
Dynamicron's Los Grandes label returns with another bumper, album-length trawl through the world of contemporary "edits-not-edits" - groovy, hypnotic dancefloor fusions that touch on disco, soul, Balearica, deep house and AOR. Across the 11 tracks, there's plenty to excite, from the dubby slo-mo shuffle of Brandon P ("Mo Lovin") and organic groovery of Heion ("Keep On Hiding"), to the classics-reinvented style of DJ Butcher (the "Wordyrappinghood" biting of "You Don't Stop") and Irregular Disco Workers' booming Balearic dub disco. Best of all, though, is "Bakerman", a cracking Laid Back rework from the talented Get Down Edits.
