Hot on the heels, and we mean hot on the heels in the same month, as their last single Congo Bongo Tel Aviv production duo F3 are releasing Magnificent next week via Cardiff’s Pole Position Recordings. It’s already out on Beatport but hits other outlets on Monday with a reMix package chock full of awesomeness.
Magnificent is a blissful slice of Disco House. F3 mix up some mix House riffs and retro synths with a low-down dirty groove, but what really lifts this track is the suitably used vocal samples and the drifting, haunting saxophone. Washing in and out of the track amongst the 80’s riffs it really gives this track a smooth late-night feel. Our boy ODahl’s take on the track lifts the party mood as he drops in his trademark squelchy funk bass energetic lead lines. Dutchman Nathan Swiss also lends his weight to the reMix package by upping the Funk quota considerably. The Swiss reMix lays this a deep, complex Funk bassline and extra helpings of retro synth stabs. Featuring additional reMix work from Phunktastike and Matt Prehn, the whole single package is nostalgic summer grooves and deep sexy beats. Definitely one to play late into the night.

German king of Boogie Tim Bernhardt A.K.A. Satin Jackets presents the new single from his Flamingo Drive project this week via Cardiff’s awesome Pole Position Recordings. Satin Jackets collaborator Eric Cozier once again team up with the man to supply some slick vocals over the Flamingo Drive synthetic Disco groove.
Everytime I Think Of You picks up where the last release, Strange World on Mullet Records, left off, but while that track was an energetic digital Disco workout, Everytime I Think Of You takes the listener to slightly more chilled places. Folding in some early ‘80’s ElectroPop influences into the Nu-Disco sound, Flamingo Drive pulls off a shimmering slice of retro synthesizer Pop with a lazy Disco groove, while Cozier’s vocals seem to float in the distance. Of course there’s a Satin Jackets reMix, where Bernhardt goes all out on the percussive Nu-Disco. With a dirty grit to the production, Satin Jackets rock vintage drum machines and an B-Boy Electro bassline to put the Boogie back into Electro Boogie while keeping it smooth and summery at the same time. The single also contains an infectious Deep House mix from CRAM and the instrumental version of the original. Perfect timing now the weather is getting warmer, this single is made for summer party time.
