Label: ChronovisionScore: 8/10
JP Chronic’s Chronovision imprint has always been renowned for its flavoursome hues; a fact that comes to light once more on the main man’s latest release for the label. On the It’s Okay EP, the Mauritius native weaves a track that’s full of bouncy, Latin percussion as well as sensual vocals, the latter of which arrive from the dab hand that is Thallie. A really spirited number, this is sure to light up the dancefloors of Ibiza and beyond.
It’s in the remix domain, however, where the EP is really cranked up a notch. And with 3 on show, there’s something for all tastes here. Kiko & Spencer K’s is a full on tech-house workout that’s notable for its suspense-filled vibes and unpredictable mannerisms, although Flashmob’s will likely steal the show. The Italian duo has been going back to their more underground roots of late and it shows on their ‘Paradise’ mix. A sparse and minimal interpretation, it lacks the fun of their originals although it should be said that this one is certainly made for darker and more discerning floors. The watertight bells prove their worth – but otherwise it’s a step away from the Flashmob of old. Baxter Bros so-called ‘Sunrise’ mix is aptly titled. The closest in structure to Chronic’s original track, it’s a suitable curtain-closer that’ll beautifully draw the night to a close. What’s more, it’s also the only remix that doesn’t completely disregard the original’s highly influential vocals. In all, a potent display of house music from the man they call JP Chronic.
