Gonzo-Gonzos versatility as a performer on the dancefloor is a trait just as easy to recognize here on the offering of his Collage EP, a release encasing two original tracks complimented by reworks.
Collage kicks in with a punchy bassline from the get go, captivating earwaves while setting the tone for a highly dynamic, glittery disco infused piece. The vocals progressively step in, with guitar loops and high pitched voices as centerpieces, adding up to a high strung sequence with major dance appeal.
Bringing in a dose of earthiness, Till Von Sein jumps in on the rework, setting things off with a stripped down bassline and subdued groove. Tribal drums entwine with metallic percussion in a reinterpretation that keeps the exotic flavour of the original while turning it into its own rolling groove rush.
Were greeted with a hard-hitting set of basses thumping in as Cuidado opens up. Seamlessly blending the lead synth into the vocal sample, the Danzon Perez chief adds layer upon layer, building up an uplifting melody.
Taking cues from the initial groove, but instilling a more mellow ambiance, Franck Roger puts forth an equally cheerful rendition of Cuidado with an added dose of bass to round off the release.
