El Tigre and Omega Kid
Two cool upbeat dance tracks for your Saturday. A bit of guitar house from El Tigre and some proper techno from Omega Kid.
El Tigre offers Viva la Vida! which is every bit as perky and uplifting as the title implies. The tags reckon it’s techno. It ain’t; this is awesome Balearic influenced house, with a massive wash of acoustic guitar. Big fat smile time.
Omega Kid are from Italy and take us to a more serious place with Vektors. Dark bass and stentorian beats accompany some acid sounds. This eventually opens itself up with some hopeful synths but without releasing you from the essential darkness at the heart of this track. The track is taken from the album Vektors.
I was going to include a link to the album, but Omega Kid says “the track Vektors and the homonym album has ben acquired by Big Mamas Records big-mamas-house.net and will be reissued on April 2017.”
