Get ready for some summery vibes coming from the new release on Jerry Bouthier’s Continental Records stable. The release in question hails all the way from Switzerland and laid back Nu-Disco duo Mannequine team up with three piece Hip Hop outfit Jas Crew. it;s an unusual combination, but one that end’s up working really well. Tropical-Hop anyone?
The track’s called Bombay Night Story and it revels in it’s dual facets. Musically it’s filled to the brim with Island beats, steely purcussion, warm, nostalgic synths and a skippy little snare that add a little playful swing. Add to this some Swiss-rhymes with a hazy flow that finds a home in the beach party disco perfectly. Bouthier himself has worked up a cheeky little Club Dub of the track (available as a free Download) that brings all those beats, basslines and chords to the front, delivering hypnotic dancefloor groove, whist labelmates Shindu inject the track with some tough snyths and some lush 80s keys for something a little darker and deeper. Another interesting release from Continental.
