Ah, the Mediterranean 20JFG dude is back, Felix! We love it when he digs in old record shops of Habana for us, but also when he lets us know what crazy shit is going down in Spain right now. Which is fucking cool stuff by the way- check it out and say thanks in the box at the bottom of the page.
I have to acknowledge that when I went into The Requester’s myspace and I played the youtube video I got my head blown off. I don’t know of any other bands in Spain that make music like this. Play this in a club, when it gets to 00.45 people start exploding. It is a demo from their forthcoming record, if they produce more shit like this, we are set for some partying. Disco Booty.
The other day I went with the guys from Delorean to a festival close to Barcelona. They were playing with Joe Crepusculo and Extraperlo. Their show was absolutely wild, dropping beats like it was Salou 1991. They also sampled their remix of El Guincho’s ‘Kalise’ and brought the house down. Their ‘Ayrton Senna EP‘ (through Fool House) shows how they roll. I have asked them to call their new record ‘Villeneuve’ but I don’t know if they willl. In the meantime, play Seasun superloud and enjoy the fade-in fade-out, as well as those wonderful echoes in the vocals.
And to finish, the newest song by Extraperlo. The production by Sergio Pérez (also behind Joe Crepusculo’s last record, as well as ‘Alegranza’ by El Guincho) is awesome. Borja Rosal sings ‘Those are the things that make you so special for me’, dances with words, speaks clear, he is our crooner. He could go to an exam, answer the questions with his made-up lyrics and get an A. Extraperlo sound like a timeless classic already.
They have released this through Doble Vida, a label that only puts out 7” with much love. In their first reference, they published this, and a B-side with the Ruby Suns. A big hug to them, I wait impatient for their second release, of which I have heard many good things.
