WAFA - Abandon Me

Available buy now on

iTunes

Juno

Beatport

WAFA's eccentric productions have been a hot topic on the dancefloor, ever since he debuted on Sinden's Grizzly label a year or so ago. Just in time for the nearing festival season, we're most excited to hand over the results of his latest studio effort, and it goes without saying, 'Abandon Me' is big! Wonky guitar, strange noises darting about in all directions, thick slabs of chopping bass, it's as cutting edge as a razor and, most of all, it works. Giving it a paint job via sleek-edged warped electro awashing, Crookers fashion the original with their essential re-fix, while Basement Jaxx return to the remix fore, displaying no rustiness with a beautiful Ibiza-pointing tropical house rub over; and then our icing on the cake, a slo-mo, half-stepping FHR remix.

Pinhead EP3

Released November 6th 2011

Pinhead returns with a third EP, bringing more treasures from his world travels.

First up, from South America, the Forro-House vibes of “Pinganela” – good time Latin party house in two versions – the more pumping lead track and the slightly mellower “Original Vibe”.

Next up, “Lucy“ is a deep & minimal Ibiza cut inspired by dancing barefoot on the beach at the Cocoon after party in Ibiza this summer.

Finally, fresh from Basement Jaxx’s “Essential Mix” this year, comes “Scotch Hop”, a typically eccentric mixture of beats and bagpipes, the sound of Scotland in the 21st century
