If Villalobos isn't careful, the three-man Wareika may steal his crown. Certainly on the evidence of Rumba Swing, they have got the art of the lopsided, rollicking groove down to a tee. Clipped jazz funk guitar and beautifully mournful piano lines vie for the listener's attention as a drunken rhythm tries to hold the arrangement together. Daniel Stefanik's interpretation retains the same, underlying atmosphere but tightens up the drums, while the Brothers' Vibe treatment pushes Wareika into deep US house territory, its plaintive keys and dramatic break down led by a tracky backing. Best of all though is Stewart Walker's version, which sees the veteran US producer expand on Wareika's original rhythmic experiment to drop an expansive, psychedelic affair.
