With previous releases divided into originals and remixes found on vital labels such as Full Pulp, Emerald & Doreen, Tom Tom Disco, Correspondant, Luv Shack, Golden Soul, and Wonder Stories, Norwegian DJ and producer Jarle Bråthen (SXDNS086) forthcoming EP on Full Pulp Ekspress delivers a powerful single: “Clap Your Hands” is the first of two collaborations between Berlin-based artists J.B. and Hard Ton (SXDNS176 as Wawashi Deejay). Backed by four strong remixes made with love by Rotciv (SXDNS069) and Prins Thomas, the release is the perfect example of how Disco can be perfectly paired with Acid. The concoction is dangerously explosive, though, but the result is definitely worth the risk.
We had the privilege of reviewing one of the remixes by Prins Thomas: His distinguishing “Diskomiks”. The prolific Norwegian artist needs no introduction. All we can possibly try to add is saying he is one of those guys that everybody in the business wants to work with. His insightful interpretation of the original is a groovy beast! Hellish as hell, the characteristic disco & cosmic elements of the Oslo-based legend’s sonority are there: The fat bassline, the trippy synth pads, and the smooth acid layer banded flawlessly together with the always impressive Hard Ton’s unique voice. In a year in which we have been constantly told to wash/disinfect our hands, it’s time to clap them! And hard! The release is one of the best of the infamous 2020, peeps! Trust the dino on this!
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Beatport page of the label.
