Longstanding jack maestro Olivetti gets busy on burgeoning imprint This Ain't Bristol. "Bee Beat" is one of those simple-but-oh-so-effective ideas that just plays on a very small Blaze vocal sample and takes it on a twisted journey through the innards of a sampler. Distinctive and wholly funky, it's one of Olivetti's finest. Remix-wise Kry Wolf digests more of the vocal sample and spits it out over a chunky full-jack swing. Finally we hit the very Dirtybirdesque "Sax O Sex". All swooning, trippy and crucially
The title track on Olivetti's latest release lives up to its claim. Supported by a dark, wobbly bass, it focuses on the interplay between an epic synth and a vocal loop that speeds up, slows down then does so ad infinitum. In the absence of any synthetic help, it's sure to get you to that special place. The same could be said about the other tracks; the Amir remix of the title track accentuates the splurging bass even further and makes the synths sound more eerie, while Alli Borem's take on "Essa Hei" provides a vision for a more lithe, stripped back take on Chicago jack. Only the drummy "U Tune" fits the modern day tool house narrative.
