Having honed his craft with some choice releases on the likes of Toy Tonics, Razor N Tape, Quintessentials and Shall Not Fade, home to his forthcoming debut LP, Bogota-born and based house DJ and producer Felipe Gordon now steps up on Fluid Funk with the six-track "Sincopa Liquida" EP, featuring New York / Detroit / Atlanta legend Kai Alce and London's funk master Aroop Roy on remix duty.

First in line, "Sincopa Liquida" treats us to a carnival of soulful Rhodes stabs, jazz trumpet solos a la Saint-Germain and accordion-like groove, all infused with a subtle retro charm. Evoking the classic French sound from the Roule years, "Samplin' N' Slappin'" comes in two versions - the original relying on a much syncopated swing, complete with mangled vocals and strings, whilst Aroop Roy's rework turns it into a more straightforward DJ-friendly weapon, sure to up the room's temperature effortlessly.

Flip sides and here comes the deeper "Obtuso", a vibrant throwback to Chicago house's heyday; its rough shuffling rhythm and muscular bass beautifully contrasting with the brittleness of crystalline piano chords and trumpet echoes out a smokey jazz-club backroom. The lush and dreamy "Evolving Textures" then heads for a more luminous, light-hearted pathway, where bouncy piano chords dance along discreet slap-bass riffs, as Kai Alce revisits the track into a more physical, jacking house number - preserving the original's weightless elegance, whilst breathing in further floor-ready character into the cut.

Early support from: Ron Trent, Basement Jaxx (Felix Buxton), Josh Wink, Jimpster, Osunlade, Fred Everything, Groove Armada (Tom Findlay), Vince Watson, Luke Solomon, Jimpster, Mr. V., Kate Hutchinson (WorldWide FM) and more.
