Munk / Misterio (Severino Horse Meat Disco and Bonar Bradberry remixes)
Vinyl / Digital
Gomma / Released May 2013
More slightly unhinged Euro beats from the Gomma stable, this time from the imprint’s co-chieftan, Mathias Modica- A.K.A. Munk. And, if you’ve never come across his work before, we’ll start by saying expect the unexpected, or at least the unforgettable.
Not for the first time in our experience, here the bossman and producer is informed by the likes of Tom Tom Club more than anything else. It’s a funk-fuelled, stepping four to the floor ode to strange lyrical deliveries and the kind of fun filled lunacy you’d expect from a revered purveyor of odd synthy dancefloor stuff. And all the better for it in our eyes.
Pleasingly we’re often a few alternatives on top of the original track. Severino of Horse Meat Disco ups the tempo considerably, delivering a brash house outing that could well end up in record boxes ranging from DJ Hell to Derrick Carter. It’s outdone by Bonar Bradberry, mind- one half of PBR Streetgang, who strips the vocals away to create a dirty piece of electro-house guaranteed to make feet move whilst heads are kept closer to the ground than during its source material. Not that this is to say all three aren’t well worth investigation (and that’s before we mention the Dub, Radio Edit, or Instrumental versions). Enough said.
