Pachanga Boy, Rebolledo, takes a break from writing with Superpitcher for a whimsical collaboration with Munk. As the title hints, expect a tongue-in- cheek combination of disorienting surf rock and weighty disco rhythm, steeped in a showering of sleaze. A touch of acid-disco creeps in with the lively bonus track, 'Got It Baby', but it's the controlled chaos of Rebolledo's wild, wigged-out giddy dub version of the title tune that steals the show.
An artcore tropical breakbeat intro to 'Falling' is soon augmented by some lush Laura Steel vox, and then the gently menacing wobbly bassline enters the fray - lurking like a Predator behind a tree. This original is very simply constructed - but sometimes simplicity is just what the doctor ordered. The Stanton Warriors carve out cavemen beats for the intro of their overhaul, giving the vocal space to breathe before dropping down into a rolling, trap-inspired disco-funk cut that features 'Good Vibrations' yelps and pared-down block-banging. Wickaman supplies the d&b version.
Interesting noises on a Kraftwerkian groove with the result sounding a little like a dancified Spiritualised. Comes with a Dub that some more inventive DJs could put to good use.
A result of a collaboration between Brit Lewis Bergen and North American electronic producer Taperecorder, the tracks came about by the now-common international file sharing creative process. 'Hoi Polloi' comes in two flavours, the first Lewis' own version and being a really nice atmospheric outing that balances ambient noises with a hefty 'oomph' really well. The other tracks point to a good working relationship between the pair and are definitely worth checking out.
