I must say I’m not familiar with the artist here (shame on me) but we hear there is an album forthcoming, which if the quality stays as high as delivered here, is more than a serious option.
However, the mysterious guy returns to Man Power’s mighty Me Me Me with incendiary new single ‘Coat Bra Pants’. Backed up with two remixes from Running Back’s Gerd Janson, as well as a debut remix from Charlie Nobody, it makes for another standout package. The new single here is a cheeky, low slung disco cut with dubby drums and old school piano chords. It bristles with life and authenticity as it builds the pressure and when it eventually drops is sure to get hands in the air punching along in joy. First up on the remixes is Charlie Nobody aka Chris Stoker from Ess O Ess and Not An Animal Records. He serves up his first ever solo piece of released music with a psychedelic dose of dance floor arpeggiation nestled beside some sweetly Balearic guitar playing. Not bad for a premiere. In total contrast to the unknown talent, Germany’s finest Gerd Janson doesn’t need any introduction at all. Here he delivers an out-and-out 90s New York house interpretation, as well as a separate organic dark disco-dub version that has BALEARIC written all over it! Both mixes work a treat on any floor and together with the two other servings make this an essential record.
