Label: CajualScore: 8/10
Sample heavy, veritable house music gems have long been the hallmark of Cajual’s back catalogue. And while Curtis Jones‘ famous label has been enjoying a new lease of life of late, it’s not particularly attributable to any new change in musical direction, but rather, a prolific series of tracks that have catapulted them back into the public consciousness.
The label’s latest track sees them call on the talents of an unlikely pairing, German producer Click Click and Brazilian producer DJ Glen. Both have previous form on an array of seminal labels, although the Girls Girls Girls EP marks the first time they have worked together as a pair. And they don’t let the side down at all on an EP that’s as notable for its bumping grooves as its full-on soundscape.
The title track is a case in point. Bolstered by a firm series of strident kicks, it soon envelops into a bassline-fueled monster, with its luscious piano lines and its spliced vocal sure to entice listeners to get on down. ”Road House” is similarly structured, but just pips ”Girls Girls Girls” at the post, due primality to to an electro vibe that we perhaps don’t hear as much of these days. It’s frantic, hot and heavy stuff.
