Choi, Stretch Your Mind & Close To Paradise

Climate Shift Album Sampler

Equatorial Records

Released: 1st May 2006 | 4 track ep
A1. Choi: The Way We Are (No Comply Remix) New Equatorial signing Choi gets the No Comply treatment in the form of a broken-boogie groove in the Uno- melodic vein. No Comply bring up the tempo bruk-style and throw in extra guitar and a tasty vibes solo for your listening pleasure. Already cdr charted by Eddy meets Yannah (Compost Records) Chris Cox (Antipodean) and Ennio Styles (Local people). A.2 Lanu: Stretch Your Mind feat.Christin Deralas Lanu comes correct again with this soulful future jazz-boogie outing featuring the soaring vocals of new signing Christin Deralas (Album soon come!) Swinging, soulful beats collide with Deralas? cosmic lyrical bent and an incredible Herbie-esque Rhodes solo from the one and only Sam Keevers (Los Cabrones? main man) B.1 Choi: The Way We Are (Young Lee & JakedaSax remix) Remix Action U.K-side from Young lee (Furious Styles) and JakedaSax. The boys tweak out the rhymed verse of the original to deliver a decidedly Native Tongues-era Hip Hop groover. B.2 Bennson: Close To Paradise feat.Karl Wagner Bennson enlists the talents of local Melbourne discovery Karl Wagner for this superb slice of cosmic, bruk future-soul. Slick beat programming and an uplifting chorus bring this track together to represent some of Bennsons best work yet.'
"?Aussie producers No Comply really save the day on this one?Their crunky, Bruk/funk version fits nicely with the rather more organic live strings and vibes of the original cut, and creates a perfect balance. Add a touch of the ?Loose lips? influence, plus a neat combination of spoken word and sung vocals, and you?re on to a real winner. Check it!?"
Straight No Chaser
"?These cuts from new boy Choi are taken from Equatorial?s first CD release, a collection of fresh and classic material from Melbourne?s premier jazzier than thou imprint. ?The Way We Are? is a blinded by attraction vocal-led cut, with close beats, a mean bass and stretched synths. The No Comply Mix sees tight guitars, a jazzacious vibraphone and slack jawed percussion get in on the act??"
