Review: Mexico's Tyo returns to his semi-regular home of Duro clutching this two-track, four-mix EP. 'Bailando' comes on like a mid-80s Spanish-language electro workout given a lick of 21st Century production polish, while Bawrut's remix does a good job of nudging it closer to house and disco floors. The other original, 'Pieles', has one of the most distinctive intros you'll hear all week - think Benedictine monks raiding the cowbell cupboard - before unleashing more 80s flavas, this time in a more coldwave-y vein and topped with a spoken female vocal in Spanish, while Niv Ast's remix drops the tempo a notch and adds rock guitars.
Review: Hot on the heels of the Watergate 26 mix, this split release showcases some of the best tracks that were included on WhoMadeWho's selection. The storied Danish trio hook up with Ruede Hagelstein to deliver a slinky, melancholic take on Bjork's "Violently Happy". Working together with Justin Evans, Hagelstein delves into a more moody take on house music with his percussive "Love Over Pyramids", which threatens but never quite manages to spiral out of control. Overall however, this is a melodic EP, as evidenced by WhoMadeWho's mesmerising rework of Alex Schaufel's "The Day Of Rebirth", a wide-eyed, dreamy affair that shimmers and soars effortlessly
