Various Artists – Discos Dorados EP [LD07]
A shimmering piece of gold – Discos Dorados is a 4 track VA e.p. brought to our shores by the Lovedancing adventurers.
Felipe Gordon & Vagabundo Club Social open up the e.p. marrying dreamy arps and luscious Rhodes stabs, with tribal esque chanting to create an exotic, bubbling groover. Eddie C then ramps up the disco flavour with his Stomp Mix of the original, introducing a phased upbeat hook and choice horn samples, isolating out elements before unleashing a killer keys solo over the top.
Flip it and Sleazy Mcqueen & Vagabundo Club Social bring the heat with ‘Chips Y Salsoul’, blending jazzy chords and echoed out trumpets evocative of a Mexican fiesta after one too many tequilas. To close it out Eddie C rides off into the sunset sampling a vocal dialogue that wouldn’t be out of place on a Moodymann record alongside succulent strings and crisp percussion – reminiscent of the jazz infused, MPC laden house of the Moomin’s of this world.
