Remember The Goonies? If you don’t, they were those pesky little monsters lapped up in droves by 80’s children. For Suruba’s 33rd release, AFFKT teams up with the label bosses themselves, Los Suruba, to deliver a fittingly haunting record called—you guessed it—Los Goonies.

Playful, harmonious and draped in textures from yesteryear, the record is nothing if not aptly titled. The title-track serves up an early highlight, a record that joins the dots between contemporary house and disco under the umbrella of luscious, intricate melodies and cascading, flickering beats that draws you in the direction of the floor.

 The second of the two originals is ”One-Eyed Willie”. Even darker and menacing as to what’s arrived before, it flows at a meandering pace that keeps tension high throughout. Finally, burgeoning French duo Amine Edge & Dance give ”Goonies” a re-work that’s very much indicative of their own party-starting capabilities. Nice stuff.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
