Madonna And The Devil captures his 90’s warehouse vibes with a darker afterhours feel. Classic NY Latin percussion grooves reel you in with late night captivating synths and organs. Thumping drums roll in and out of hypnotic rhythm. The EP ends with Eli Escobar’s Theme, an ambient tune reveling with arpeggios and 6am melodies.
“Your Love Will Set You Free” taken from Caribou’s recent album “Our Love”, gets a fresh remix from Carl Craig.
Chicago's Shaun J. Wright & Alinka have been hard at work over the past couple of years, launching the Twirl! brand via a string of events on their home turf in 2013, while October saw Twirl! step from event to record label. Kicking off with material from the founding duo which was championed by the likes of BBC Radio 1's Annie Mac, Groove Armada, Luke Solomon, Gorgon City and Art Department to name but a few, a striking indication of the modern appeal and hard hitting quality embodied in the pair's output.
The Eli Escobar interpretation of 'Wait For Love' follows, taking things in a slightly different direction with dropped tempo 707 style rhythms, meandering arpeggio synth lines and bulbous sub bass hits. While an emotive piano chord progression and snippets of the original vocal lines instil a warmth and musicality to the reshape.
