Since the beginning of Cómeme, until today we feel a connection to the electronic beats from South Africa. Cómeme tracks like "Pata pata", "Osea... Hello?", "El Sucu Tucu" and many more prove this, and one main inspiration, is DJ Spoko, partner of DJ Mujava, for whom he wrote and produced the legendary "Township Funk".
But also in Joburg, and without our knowledge, Cómeme tunes were dropped at some of the coolest parties in town, so Matias Aguayo aka The Don jumped of joy when he was invited to play there, where he met Spoko and started to jam with him in a studio in the center of Joburg!
Jamming and smoking till the break of dawn, they put together these tracks, that carry the spirit of this label, the vibe of Joburg nights, the “Bacardi” rhythms from the Atteridgeville township outside Pretoria, comemian latin- tech grooves, the dancesteps on the carpet of Kitchener's Bar in Braamfontein and the hotness of a Cómeme night in Medellín, Cologne or Buenos Aires.
1. Dirty Dancing
The title track is a banger for the body-conscious dancefloor, as all tunes on this EP. "Watch what you're doing!" Spoko Aguayo and Moonchild (Yes! The Moonchild!) holla on top of an irresistible beat and a droney bassline, making you either wanna jump or go side to side, or just down, down, down, 100% dance floor approved.
2. Ghost of Dombolo
Already a classic on some Joburg nights, "Ghost Of Dombolo" is a dirty modern tune to jack to in several ways, provoking provocative moves in those who know how to generate them!
3. Something about the Groove
Here comes another dance fundamentalist, and we can hardly imagine someone more fit to join Spoko and Aguayo on this trip: Elbee Bad, also known as the Prince of Dance - he here provides an acapella called "Something about the groove" and a rhythm that Spoko and Aguayo crafted while they were waiting for Moonchild to come to the studio.
4. Taxi Rank
Closing the EP here comes an anthem, much inspired by the "Taxis" - being at a time the most efficient way of getting your music heard in town! A driving solo of electronic Kalimba for nonstop dancefloor kraze in the very own style of this EP.
