We're back!! Phonica Records return with our first release for the year 2010 with the second platter from Hector – "Orale" – complete with two outstanding remixes from SIS and Alex Picone. "Orale" is a slow burner of a track, starting off with a smooth chuggy groove, a pulsating bassline and carefully placed vocal snippets. A tantalisingly long breakdown later, we’re treated to a killer drop and then ushered into about 7 minutes of dancefloor nirvana. Simple as that.
Following that is Alex Picone’s remix. A recent guest at one of our parties (he smashed it btw), we couldn’t help but ask Alex for a remix. Going for a straight to the dancefloor approach, mr Picone’s remix is all chunky beats, syncopated snares and a very big kick drum. And when you think it’s all over, a looped sax lick comes in and takes the whole thing a level higher.
Rounding up the record is the pièce de résistance – an absolutely breathtaking remix from SIS. A very dreamy, end-of-night sort of record, SIS’s remix of "Orale" is a quite frankly one of the best things we’ve heard in a while. Melodic and very textured, there’s lots of playful little elements that will keep you guessing every time you listen to it.
