Tartelet Records readies for the summer ahead, as NU GUINEA step up with an outstanding EP!
Last years self-titled EP on the Early Sounds label stood out a mile and became a cult classic amongst those lucky enough to scoop a copy. The tantalisingly tropical House on offer there informs this excellent EP too.
The beautifully dislocated & mid-tempo 'Bouganvilles Live' lays out some warm analogue textures across a live percussion base, while the Vocal Edit of title track Nu World ploughs a similar furrow to obscure 80’s Afro-disco, with rich musical synth work over a pacey Afro groove and undeniable Jazz-Funk flair.
The Flute Mix passes over the vocal refrain from mix one and just gets down and wigs-out on those solos - an absolute killer!
Exotica Dance Club sounds like Herbie visited the Salsoul studios with his banks of analogue gear and jammed out into the small hours, as we head home on the beatless Outro, all synth washes and lavish ear candy.
