The debut from Second City Firsts and the seventh release from Mabuk sees two new tracks strut their stuff across the stage. First up is ‘Latido Del Corazon’ which exudes a warm rush of emotion care of carefully placed chords, pads and punchy, sunshine fueled percussion. Enhanced by the repeating vocal touches alongside a sprinkling of tingling synths this has more than a hint of Balearic uplift to it. Next is, ‘Espiritu De Verano’ which feels tougher in an almost eighties sense care of its imposing bassline, accompanied by a suitably atmospheric array of keys and blazing Sax.
