Pick of the week:
Daniel Rateuke with Bakgat on Stil vor Talent, SVT220.
Point House Records label owner and Dusseldorf club resident, Daniel Rateuke manifests his passion for afro-house rhythms in his first Stil vor Talent release with two dancefloor-ready numbers.
Title track Bagkat summons a tribal excursion into South African rhythms, dialing into a rhythmic mysticism by layering exotic percussions and nostalgic vocals. And impending sense of tension and release stirs up a constant excitement, a sonic trait that transcends onto the second cut.
Yenboo strikes out as an inherently heady, intense slice, with a bubbling energy and sweeping drive. Indigenous elements are omnipresent, soothing yet stirring in an array of harmonic invocation.
