Mario Ochoa – Lost/Thief

September 4, 2014 in Singles

Mario Ochoa Lost/Thief Incorrect MusicAnd at about the opposite end of the TIWWD spectrum from the chilled, beach-y deep vibes of Hollis Parker (see below) we have this hi-octane EP from Incorrect Music. SG revival vibes in the area!

Not entirely sure why it’s billed as Lost/Thief cos there are actually three tracks on offer. The big n’ bouncy Lost itself could have come straight out of a Julian Jonah or DJ Face set circa 1998, all frantic hi-hats, ragga shouts, sci-fi stabs and SERIOUS rudebwoy bass. Thief is a housier variation on a similar theme, while bass-y tech-houser Leprechaun, presented here in Anthony Attalla remix form, largely ditches the 90s flavas in favour of a more contemporary feel, a looping rap vocal (“we’re gifted MCs and we love to dance,” I think he’s saying) and lashings of big-room drama.

Liking all three cuts but for sheer nostalgic fun and frolics, Lost romps home in first place. Booooo!
