Review: For this next selection we can see that the Multi Cult team have assembled a top draw line up to showcase some super experimental dub music, allowing the future of the genre to shine. We kick off with the haunted atmospheric layering and wavy melodic structures of Drugface's ' In The Clouds, followed by the incredible persuasive manoeuvres of Dreems' Digi-Dub-Dub-Dub mix of Espiritu, originally by Nicola Cruz. Next we take it Lo-Fi as Zongamin delivers a trippy bullet with 'Cosmic Serpent', a woodwind led exploration into syncopation and subs. Finally, we hear the Muli Cult remix of Golden Bugs 'Tamba', a vibrant bop consisting of glittering melodic blips and crunchy drum structures. Lovely work!

Naeku (Uji remix) - (8:03) 123 BPM
Review: Following the enigmatic release of an another Zongamin record, 'digital folk producer' Nicola Cruz returns to Thomas Von Party's Multi Culti label in remix form thanks to versions by Auntie Flo, John Talabot and Tunisia's Azu Tiwaline to Luis Maurette's Uji alias (and a Micro Dub by TVP himself). Plodding in some lighter dubstep vibes is John Talabot in his deep and steady mix of "Naeku" that Uji touches up aswell with some looped vocal chants, twinkling melodies and a slight of dub splayed across those dramatic piano chords. Next is TVP's bottom heavy, percussive and filtered remake, while Auntie Flo drops the tempos for something more rare groove in his mix of "Aima" that takes on a similar dub and vocal hook in Azu Tiwaline's version too.

Review: Safely curating from Montreal a line up of disco, electro and dancefloor tracks to rise from the ashes of the early 2010s, Thomas von Party, aka Tiga's brother, has curated a discography that includes the likes of Zongamin, Golden Bug, Jamie Paton to Sascha Funk and Red Axes. Hybridism presents a second record for Cruz in 2020 and this five-track drop sees the French-Ecuadorian drum up a dubby and jazz-tipped assortment of lo-fi, exotic percussion and space rhythms that remain slow-mo while maintaining their chuggings pulses. 5 stars.

Espiritu De Proteccion (Multi Culti Flute-A-Pella) - (2:20) 77 BPM
Review: Nicola Cruz polishes off a trippy tryptic of cult releases for Multi Culti with the Espiritu LP. As folklorica's chosen lord, Cruz has shepherded the masses from the church of high tempos and brought trance-formed revellers down to earth with his fusion of crisp electronics and organic, indigenous vibrations. "Espiritu de Proteccion" is a deeply esoteric tribal groove that's geared for some life affirming moments on the dancefloor. The "Multi Culti Flute-A-Pella" up next does exactly what it says on the tin hereon this quirky and psychedelic journey into the exotic.

Puente Roto (Quantic remix) - (5:27) 67 BPM
Review: ZZK Records is a homegrown record label and artist collective born out of the Zizek Club nights in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Here it is over to Rising talent Nicola Cruz who collaborates with globetrotting production heavyweight Quantic on an epic remix of "Puente "Roto from Cruz's debut album. Following the release of Prender el Alma in 2015, the young Ecuadorian called on a crop of producers for remix duty. Quantic is one of Cruz's inspirations and is said to have 'answered the call in his signature way with a bass-heavy, jazzy and psychedelic display of genius' and we'd have to agree. The pan pipes and flutes remain intact, as do the hand played wooden percussion, but Quantic's injection of dreamy electronics works absolute magic over its five and a half minutes.

Review: More indie world music vibes courtesy of Thomas Von Party's esteemed Multi Culti imprint. The folklorica of Ecuadorian producer Nicola Cruz's Cantos de Vision EP gets a bunch of wicked remixes on this EP. Starting out with Simple Symmetry's dark, bumpy and grinding rendition of "Tzantza", Earthly Delight's Yor Kultura from the Netherlands deliver a lo-slung deep funk makeover of the track too. "Bruxo" gets a couple of remixes as well, but it was all about the aforementioned Von Party's deep tribal voodoo acid groove: which will take you deep into the spiritual home of the the rainforest.

Review: Hailing from Ecuador, Nicola Cruz is a mysterious producer whose fine work tends to appear on esteemed label Multi Culti. Here is back with more occultish offerings (to the gods), four in fact, all of which will have you feeling light headed and possibly even aroused. Spiritually of course. "Tzantza" opens as nocturnal shuffle in the jungle, kind of like an organic body music. Elsewhere "Bruzo" mixes off-kilter rhythms and cut ups tribal chants, "Danza De Vision" is a livelier affair that's adds pan pipes and electronic bleeps to the mix and "Rio Branco" is a linear fusion of minimal percussion.

NTFL - "Vacio" - (3:20) 120 BPM
Review: Calypso are back with another clutch of exciting mavericks orbiting the weirder end of the contemporary club spectrum. There are minimal wave influences to be tacitly detected on Nicola Cruz's "Tu Recuerdo" as well as kind of stripped back acid freakiness, while in FE's "Tarde O Temprano" there's even more gritty, industrial tinged bite in the billowing surges of machine rhythms. Quixosis takes some wonderfully lilting traditional percussion and gives it a freaky treatment which makes for the kind of slow jam Weatherall would have wielded with aplomb. NTFL finishes this ear-snagging compilation off with the plaintive, Dembow-tinted "Vacio".

Review: If you're looking for anything termed under the umbrella of 'Balearic', then Canada's Multi Culti will deliver in fine style, and save you all the hassle of digging for lost B-sides from the 1980s and 1990s. It's a call to the Sun Gods this time with Sun Gaze II, a sublime collaborative EP from a bunch of new and exciting talent. Nicola Cruz opens the doors to heaven with the tribal-minded chugger that is "Pagano", followed by Moscoman's more house-leaning jingle on "Se Acabo". "Boom Boom Boom" by Sanga features Sheikh Djibouti on the vocals, offering a hazy wave of Hispanic rhyming, while "Shkarim Ba Afela" by 84PC is a tune that you could truly imagine being in a Cafe Del Mar mix by the likes of Jose Padilla - softly-spoken but nonetheless effective and sensual on the hips.

Review: Nicola Cruz returns with another spellbinding fusion of Afro Brazilian charm in the form of "Folha De Jurema". With the dusky dulcets of Arteria FM, the dusty strums of Spaniol and sultry plucks of Salvador Arguaya, Cruz commands a decorated cast as they explore a mystical new vision of a traditional Brazilian folk standard. The remixes are just as warm and alluring as Xique Xique adds a little steel string tension, Crussen maps out a chugging Scandinavian odyssey and Rio's Carrot Green brings us back home to the motherland with a poignant, hazy flutter of house soul. Stunning.
