beer, beer we want more beer
Continuing yesterday’s alcohol theme, here’s Cobra from Martin Iverson, which claims to be named after the popular insipid Indian lager (you want a pale ale to go with that curry, sir). There’s nothing insipid about the track which is a gentle bit of house, taken to the next level through the clever use of kalimba and conga. Percussion heaven.
Cobra comes in three flavours. The best is XL which stretches out the groove, without ever getting too over-wrought. Perfect organic chilling music. Afefe Iku offers a more spaced out interpretation, with extra synth action. Finally, the demo version which shows more strongly the housey underpinnings.
Blurb: More entertaining music from ARCo. head honcho Martin Iveson aka Atjazz. This time in the form of his well sought after ‘Cobra’, a song inspired by Indian Beer, yes!, it’s that basic. This song has been for the most of 2013 & 2014 rocking festival dance-floors, clubs & boat parties worldwide and Martin has kept this well polished jewel under his belt for quite some time. Backing Cobra up with a strong percussive backbone is the one and only Gabrielle Poso, a Yoruba Records regular and a dam fine human being, Clicking out Kalimba loops & conga rhythms really helps cobra to enter into an organic realm. Pulling up along side Martin and dropping and amazingly well crafted deep workout is Yoruba Records’ very own Afefe Iku. A man who does not remix songs willy-nilly and a man that is quite difficult to pin down, Afefe Iku’s tight hold over his sonic output makes this collaboration nothing but an honour for all of us at Atjazz Record Company.
