Quickly following up the last, instant sell-out smash, Shir Khan’s infamous “Black Jukebox” series hit us with the 12th edition. Introducing anonymous project Aussteiger who gets things bouncing with the Summer house monster, “Bangbao”. Lush filter sweeps, twinkling keys and powerful bass are order of the day here as the producer works his magic on one of the sunniest grooves we’ve heard this year. “Return” keeps that outdoor terrace flavour but plunges us deep into the twilight, tribal drums and deep electronics locking us into its hypnotic recess. Martin Lewis contributes a seriously fun and summery version of “Now That We Found Love”, utilizing glorious xylophones and horns throughout the melody and letting it roll out with aplomb. Finally, we get the cheeky “Do It” edit which combines hypnotic congas with funky guitar licks and a sun-burnt, Latin energy to create a sizzling brew of hot dancefloor energy. Great stuff! Limited Vinyl. Move quick!
