Leciscu – Jazz-O-Matic EP

June 12, 2016 in Singles

Leciscu Jazz-O-Matic EP House Cookin' RecordsThree quite different mixes on offer of this latest from Romania’s Leciscu, who’s appeared previously on such labels as Gents & Dandy’s and Kolour Recordings.

In its Original form, Jazz-O-Matic features tuff-but-muted kicks, warping organ/synth drones, scatty vocal snips, all topped with some luvverly tinkling jazz ivories. The Melodymann Redeep Remix is a more bumpin’, garage-y pass sporting organ parps and stutterin’ beats, while finally the Khillaudio Remix heads into far deeper waters with lingering piano chords, a fat-ass bassline, dreamy sax and “jazz! Charlie Parker…” vocal snips which househeads of a certain age may also remember being used on Tingo Tango’s It Is Jazz from 1990, though I couldn’t tell you the original source.

The two rerubs just edge it over the original for me, but I couldn’t pick between the two and TBH all three mixes are very fine!

Out: This week

About: This comes on Belgian label House Cookin’, who you can find on Soundcloud and Facebook.
