Review: Aussie larrikins Andrew Stanley and Matthew Handley aka Yolanda Be Cool, known for their 2010 smash hit "We No Speak Americano" team up with Los Angeleno Dillon Nathaniel here on Lee Foss' Repopulate Mars label for some bass-driven tech house that's aimed squarely at the peak time dancefloor. The result is the latin infused groove of "Bolivian Sunrise", while equally set on the White Isle party season is the punchy, funky attitude of "Beleza" up next. This is not the first time the three of them have teamed up; some of you may remember last year's controversial "Tell Me Why" on Club Sweat.
Review: 2020 has certainly shown the world that unless we make the necessary changes to our way of life and save the earth - we may very well have no other option but to Repopulate Mars! And if you think our observations there are 'deep' well.. you'd best get a load of the tracks on 'Repopulate Stars Summer Jams'. Highlights not limited to: the sultry mood music of John Summit & Dead Space's "Dreams", Rone White & Rowen Clark bringing the afterhours minimal funk on "The Whistle", as does Miami's Kristi Yang on "Touch Me With Your Mind" (feat Ms.Chin). For bangers they have you covered too: Aussie larrikins Yolanda Be Cool are back with the cheeky and wonky slammer "In Your Arms" and the ever reliable Piem delivers tough rolling UK tech house for the main room on "Absolutely".
Review: AC Slater's Los Angeles-based Night Bass label has been turning the US on its head what with all the real UK bass flavours they've been serving up. They've now made it to the fourth instalment of the mighty This Is Night Bass series, and once again it's sizzling with energy. There are eight tracks this time including the heavy stomp of Aussie Yolanda Be Cool & Wongo's "Roosevelt", Sinden's gloriously dark "God" and the deep jackin' grooves of Bijou's "Cant' See Us". Night Bass then, bringing quality to the masses.
Review: Australian commercial house act Yolanda Be Cool know how to make a floor-filling anthem. Here we find their popular hit "Soul Makossa (Money)" receive even more remix treatments - there are a whopping ten versions included. No doubt there will be something for everyone, with some of our faves including the moody carnival riot of the Zed Bias' "Hypnotic" remix, DJ Kone & Marc Palacios' steamy tribal romper and Daras/Perez/Ferrer's raw electro-house belter.
