Malente&Dex – Habibi
Format: Vinyl + Digital
WOT U CALL IT? SAHARA HOUSE!?!
From the desk of EXPLOITED RECORDS we present you the current house bomb by MALENTE&DEX.
Malente&Dex are back with this three track EP that’s filled with three house tracks, each with a little ethnic flavour. HABIBI leads things off by conjuring some middle eastern vibes, including spoken samples of the tracks’ title and sitar loops. DOO DOO DANCE follows that, taking you to South Africa with the help of guest vocalists (and husband and wife) SPOEK & GNUCCI BANANA, who deliver some fun party rocking vocals over more middle eastern samples. IN NIGHTLCUBS continues with a Balkan vibe, featuring some upbeat horns that give the track a great bouncy feel. Also includes the INSTRUMENTAL & ACAPELLA for DOO DOO DANCE. Remixes to be announced from CAMEL, SHIR KHAN, TONY SENGHORE, JULIO BASHMORE, DAVID KENO, JOYCE MUNIZ&SHANTI ROOTS, CHERNOBYL.

His work ‘UNDRESS ME’ (featured on Exploited) took inspiration from retro saucy/pornographic magazines and Finnish traditional costumes. Vinyl Design by MAREK POLEWSKI from FLOOR 5. Get ready to feel used to enjoy exploitation.
