Clandestino’s fourth release they welcome Russia’s Denis Kolomensky to the Clandestino family. ‘Recovery’ opens with a lively conga section, snappy snares and a classic Detroit-style drum sequence takes hold while emotive pads elevate. Man of the moment Felix Dickinson ramps up the tension with a modern jack track by intensifying the bass, introducing firing drums and darker pads. Clandestino turn out an energetic, organic version. Rich with afro-centric drums, layered with an ethnic chant and lush forest atmospheres. ‘Santa Monica’ takes a slower pace; gentle sunset chords complement marimba hits and atmospheric key stabs. Balearic Gabba Sound System’s stunning rework is an extended blissed out reinterpretation; adding a dreamy female vocal over heart wrenching synths.
ANDREW WEATHERALL I really like this EP. My particular favourites are the B Side. Santa Monica is something else that will sit very well in ALFOS sets for this season and seasons to come.
JUSTIN ROBERTSON This is great! Felix mix for knees up both versions of Santa Monica for meditation and trance like joy.
TIM SWEENEY I love this. I can definitely play it on Beats in Space
PETE HERBERT Clandestino definitely raising the bar here. Two immense originals from Kolomensky, and the remixes are spot on too! Best release to date for me.
LEO MAS Yes, il love this versions Kolomensky – Recovery (Felix Dickinson Remix) and Kolomensky – Santa Monica (Balearic Gabba Sound System. ‘Dirty Monica’ Remix)
MAX ESSA Clandestino continue to go from strength to strength with this release. ‘Recovery’ is perfect dance floor material with both the original and Felix Dickinson mixes sure to be getting lots of action over the coming months. ‘Santa Monica’ is equally satisfying and will be soundtracking many a twilight hour I’m sure. Great remix from Balearic Gabba!”
FAZE ACTION Beautifully crafted EP from Kolomensky on Clandestino here. Conga and drums get a serious work out on the title rack with a seriously edgy remix from Felix Dickinson. The B Side turns out some blissful balearic atmosphere. Possibly Santa Monica might be my favourite here.
DAVE HARVEY FUTURBOOGIE Thanks for sending, these all sound great but my fave is Felix’s remix, top work from him!
