Kick it like Ronaldinho!
"The Flute Tune" has been voted as Best Release National at
@ DOA: "The two of these tunes are not your garden-variety Drum & Bass
- these tracks take you back to the old school, where the doors of influence
were wide open, and worn on our sleeves. When will more producers see that the
beauty of Drum & Bass was when we explored outside of the scene, not regurgitating
what's already been done?"
Franksen @ Headliner August 2008:
"Mit dem „Flute Tune“ kommt eine längst rotierende Dubplate-Bombe, die
das Attribut Humor im Drum-n-Bass endlich mal groß schreibt."
Baio destemperado of Brazilian group Barbatuques was the soundtrack
for a Nike spot with
Ronaldinho, that came along with the soccer world cup 2006. The official Drum'n'Bass-Bundesliga
Champions of 2006 J-Cut (Advanced, Fokuz, Renegade, AJC) & Kolt Siewerts elaborated
the faint footwork on this tune with massive Bass & Breaks and sent a very coveted
and highly inofficial Drum'n'Bass remix into the game. This racket kept scoring
rewinds around the clubs as Flautas Felizes by Howie & Chance
for quite a while causing some rumours: "Hey DJ, play that song with the flute!"
Property rights have been officially cleared now with the Brazil publisher and
therefore Santorin is proud to release an official copy into your private record-lineup.
The flipside comes with even more serious beatdribblin' "Rhythm Track" featuring
some absolutely wicked African drumming, to take you to the immaculate roots
of broken beats. Old school pads, tempo switches in the breakdown and exstatic
percussions break the static on the dancefloor. Already a duo since the days
of "Treasure Island", "Days Like This" (Ambassadors) and "Confidential Thoughts"
(Super8Sound), Simon V & Telmo A teamed up again to create this rootical rhythm
Both tracks are featured on Kmag #103 cover CD mixed by TGM/The Green Man.
