Review: Auckland's Grass Green are at it again with another series of smooth and sexy (not to mention cheeky!) slow-mo house re-edits. And fair play; they're executed pretty darn well, even the man himself Greg Wilson named this in some of his top choice of re-edits of 2013. First up "Just Here to Raise Ya" is yes, you guessed it: The Happy Mondays. Shallow Taxi's "Melody of Creed" reworks M People, but it's good, trust us! Finally and the standout here is Monkey Boots at it again but this time with "Lullaby for Spider Man" reworking The Cure's classic of yes you guessed it: "Lullaby".
Review: "Mind Biscuit": Something tasty for your brain to chew on while your feet mulch up the dancefloor. Auckland crew Monkey Boots lay down two jack-slapping originals that dig deep into the true deep house psyche. "Impossible Need" comes with smoky vocal and smouldering bass vibes on the groove while "Yearning For You" slaps with a lighter sensation, all wafty minor key organs and soul-stirring vocals. Remix-wise Reed & Radley subvert "Yearning For You" with a little more space and reverbed magic while The Phantom Flan Flinger gets all reflective and shimmering on the Balearic bomb "Lullaby For Spiderman". Beautiful.
Review: Auckland's deep delving duo Monkey Boots are back with a new version of "Whitworth Strut", this time reworked by disco royalty himself, Greg Wilson. Under Wilson's guidance the track becomes like a whooshy, subaquatic disco swim with tides of touchy feely loops washing all over the listener in blessed-out joy. Elsewhere we get a new track "Hold Back The Night", which is a lean and mean slice of linear electro funk (also successfully dubbed out by Andy Hart) that clocks in at a whopping eight minutes!
