Jack Michael & Robert James – Salt & Shake EP (Incl. Michelle & Fede Lijtmaer Remixes) – 12″ (OPIA009) (PRE-ORDER)
Two worlds collide in number nine from OPIA Records as they welcome on board Orbital London maestro Jack Michael, and BODY MVMT ambassador, Robert James for the ‘Salt & Shake’ EP. The UK pair join forces for two collaboration tracks, receiving remixes from two of Uruguay’s finest, Michelle and Fede Lijtmaer.
Opener ‘Pleasure Beach’ is a dynamic dance floor assault, subtly organ led through a storm of rough and ready sounds, a familiar energy from the OPIA label, pushing club ready material in a discerning fashion. Providing her ‘Pepsi Max Mix’ is live performer, and label affiliate Michelle. A slightly more progressive take on the original, ready to make an impact.
With more snap than a Paul Hollywood shortbread is the B1 ‘Great British Break Off’. A rollercoaster of intensity, intelligently arranged by the dynamite duo. Clean broken drums complimenting the sub heavy bass. Delivering the final track of the EP is Fede Lijtmaer remixing the B1. A classy outing from the South American, a spiralling trip through beeps and bleeps.
