It's a bank holiday here today, so I'm taking a sun kissed freebie to lead everyone into the weekend. My choice is the utterly amazing:
Matias Aguayo – Minimal (DJ Koze Mix)
We've featured DJ Koze on a couple of occasion, and this is more of his happy faced sun drenched house output. A pumping Latin disco groove, with detuned pads and keys and a nice fluid beat that drives the track but never over takes it.
It's hard to explain how much Koze has flipped this track, Matias Aguayo's original is a deep minimal (unsurprisingly) track, with Aguayo's heavily breather spoken word vocal sitting perfectly over it, so to hear Koze take it and give it a huge South American feel without it ever really drifting into your typical latin house track… well just classic Koze.
It was out on Kompact originally, but you can pick it up on a number of compilations, and it's really worth it:
