Moonbootica "My Hot Dope" / Moonbootica & Reset! "Party Life" EP
Those scintillating, gyrating, irritating Moonbootica boys are back to slap you into action with a sizzling EP and this time they’ve brought some new friends with them.
Easing you in with “My Hot Dope” in its unadulterated original album form, the party really starts with the manic Milano party guests Reset! A collective of DJs, composers, producers and promoters and now a fully-fledged live act, the guys have played legendary parties as far afield as LA and Australia and, of course, in Milan’s finest establishments such as Parco Sempione and Magazzini Generali. Having remixed the likes of Fatboy Slim, Audio Bullys and Cassius (more than once) and released a string of EPs on Cheap Thrills, Reset! have teamed up with Moonbootica to add their unique blend of huge basslines and epic breakdowns – they like to call it Turbofunk – to the Moonbootylicious mayhem we already know and love.
“Party Life” does what it says on the can. Staccato tomatoes for your bloody marys.
“Wild Life” is a mesmeric moto guzzi workout for our favourite moped gang. Hanseatic Acrobatics and Latin Funk in the trunk.
There’s more. Variations on the “My Hot Dope” theme come courtesy of:
Purple Disco Machine from OFF Recordings,
PDM dig a little deeper into the foundations of house and comes up with another dope diamond. PDM stands for Purple Disco Machine but it could also stand for Proper Dance Music.
Don Rimini (DIM MAK, Southern Fried) claims to have spent one third of his life in clubs. Judging by the historical flavour of his tunes, he spent the other two thirds listening to house and techno from Chicago to Detroit. This guy knows his stuff. Either that or he’s been playing tennis and skating those pipes.
Funkin Matt (Fool's Gold, DIM MAK) needs no introduction but he gets one anyway. Suffice to say he’s released on Sidney Samson’s Samsobeats, Dim Mak and Fool’s Gold as well as on his own Fjordin imprint. His rather more technoid sound rewrites the Dutch blueprint without compromising the standards of excellence we have come to expect from the Netherlands.
Last but not least, Tagteam Terror (Top Billin, Moonbootique) are not as scary as they sound, in fact their jackin’ house with a nod to old school and French house make ya feel all warm inside and get you on the dancefloor when the bell rings.
Show some love...
