Whether under his own name or as Manolo, Helsinki's Roberto Rodriguez has chalked up over 50 releases - including outings on the likes of Compost, Plastic City, Lazy Days and Freerange - and now comes to Rare Wiri with a new offering that's available in two quite different mixes. The Original rides a rock-solid midtempo 4/4 kick and a fat, squelchy analogue synth bassline, augmenting same with sci-fi synths and brass stabs, and is a sure bet for peaktime nu-disco stomping. The analogue drums, bass guitar and reggae-ish guitar chops of the Paper Street Soul remix, on the other hand, bring a mellower vibe altogether.
