Discodromo get in a Pickle

The Italians from Berlin – Discodromo:  hit East London this weekend, holding court for new business at hot E2 spot The Pickle Factory.

 

The Crucial & Fresh boys have kindly dug into their not insubstantial boxes and come up with 5 tracks that are doing the business for them this winter..

1. Instant House – Awade (Joe’s Jungle Sounds Dub)

Joaquin “Joe” Claussell was a totally new one for us this year. This record is a great way to open a set. Who doesn’t love the sound of a rain stick? It possesses that tribal / shamanistic aesthetic we’ve been hunting for in our tracks this year. Couple that with the sound of a sax solo and some wooshing sounds and you might as well not play anything else ever again. More of the same over on Joe Claussell’s ‘Sacred Rhythms Music’. Shouts to DJ Dreamcatcher, on what ever spiritual plane he currently resides on .

2. Michal Turtle – Astral Decoy

This brilliant record fulfills all those cosmic cravings. Its part of a wonderful series of 12’s released on the fantastic, Music from Memory label, which releases records from way back when. This was originally recorded in 1980’s by a young Michal Turtle in his parents living room, but still sounds so relevant today. Fumix played this on our radio show a while back and we’ve been hooked ever since.

3. Pan Solo – Jungle Falls

Our close friend Ben Mansfield runs the fantastic Cosmic Pint Glass record label, and this little beauty is out very soon on the new ep. Hot Tropics. We have been lucky enough to have access to this track for a few months now, and it never disappoints. It’s maybe a bit weird, which is probably why we like it. The pan pipes stay strong throughout and hold it all together very nicely, and the results are always the same, a general chorus of heads asking “who on earth is this?”, fantastic stuff.

4. José Roboter – Amazonia

This is a weird one. We have a penchant for anything rain forest related at the moment so we searched ‘Amazonian house’ on google. This wee number popped up and that was it, love at first sight / listen. It sounds wet, like a rainforest. I cant seem to find out much about Jose Roboter other than he hasn’t got many soundcloud followers and that he was “born in the 70s from the unexpected love between a famous spanish flamenco dancer and a tattooed Berliner w*nker.” His output is high and if you like raw gear driven house then check him out.

5. Jack Pattern – Blackout

This is a winner every time. 100% builder and gets the floor lit! This one never leaves the bag and it’s usually a race between the two of us as to who plays it first. We also love any record that has dolphins on it. The ‘Another Language’ ep it features on has a nice Ruf Dug rework on it as well. Keep your eye out for the Swiss based Jack Pattern boys, we love their work and are expecting great things from them in the future.
