Written by Heitor. Produced by Heitor. Remix and additional production by State. Featuring Colin Seddon on Percussion. Promoed as a double-pack, with a total of eleven mixes on offer, this is a superb Latin-tinged house offering from, believe Ligeirin (Afron) - Heitor* - Ligeirin or not, Simple Red's guitar player. Though some of the mixes concentrate on the hi-life style guitar, in particular, the various Afron mixes by Parrot, the State version prefers to travel from techno to balearic, covering as many bases in between as possible.
Personal favourite is Mark Bydon's Banana Kick mix which blends Brazilian rhythms, soaring horns and a sauntering funk bassline. However, the strangely-named Maurice Zou Zou comes a very close second with his Cote D'Ivoire Frenzy variant, an astonishing percussion-led workout featuring the funkiest guitar Sun On 5 At 152 - Matmos - The West I've heard since Nile Rodgers laid down the plexiglass Strat, and a vibe part which is guaranteed to get your vertebrae shinning up and down your back in a jitter-bug frenzy.
Hence the name, I suppose! Full marks to East West for an exciting and original dancefloor package - seach it out at all costs! Heitor - Ligeirin Heitor 8 State - remix by State. Ligeirin (Afron) - Heitor* - Ligeirin Written by Heitor.
