SALES NOTES

Parisian DJ and producer Kiddy Smile embodies the lifeblood of house music past and present. His music flashes with nostalgia for those mid-80s New York basements where house music first came alive. ‘Teardrops In The Box’ pulses with the intoxicating energy of a Ball in Kiddy’s native Paris, with its deep-rooted traditions but its intensely forward-focussing culture.

Following up on his fearsome debut ‘Let A B!tch Know’ on Defected, Kiddy Smile has deployed the well-established remixing capabilities of Mystic Bill, a house champion from the underground schools of Detroit and Chicago. His ‘Jersey Dub’ eases back on the tempo for a syncopated strut to The Garden State, while the ‘Vocal Mix’ is a bulkier prospect, emphasising Kiddy’s growling vocal with some serious attitude bass. Finally, his vinyl-exclusive ‘Acid Mix’ is specifically designed for getting twisted on dark, underground floors. Cowbell and raw synths give ‘Teardrops In The Box’ unadulterated dancefloor credentials but this is more than a club record; the layers to this track run deep.
