Alvina Red & Manuel Perez return to Nice & Nasty with a subtle disco funk groove that pays homage to the 80s B-Boy and the 70s Disco Queen. Back 2 School, however, is a full frontal sonic assualt of deep house and Detroit techno with the B-Boy and Disco references being subtle undercurrents.
Back 2 School is the duos follow up to Celica and Velvet Police and comes complete with remix es by Erell Ranson, Pseudonym and Harem Tone.
As a bonus this promo pack features 2 remixes by Manuel Perez from the Nice & nasty vaults and one future remix.
Erell Ranson drops a wonderful Detroit inspired piece that will easily supply energy to the DJ sets of Techno, Progressive and House DJs. Its is just so deep and at times lush.
Northern Ireland’s Pseudonym follows Ranson with another Detroit inspired piece that adds weight to the growing repertoire of the young Ulster man.
Dublin’s Harem Tone gets the party rocking with a House, Funky House and party Rockin’ mix.
The finally mix by Vax 1 is one of the funkiest, new approaches to techno we have heard this year and are deliighted to release. We’ll let you decide its genre.
As a bonus this promo features Manuel’s remix of Love to Me by Hakan Lidbo feat Yota which will be out soon on nice & nasty and is a funky, sexy, dirty little tune. Finally the promo features two older remixes from Manuel from the vaults of Nice & Nasty 2009 and 2010’s remixesd for Heretics of Disko and Rennie Foster, respectively.
Manuel is a proper funk DJ, purveying soul, house and disco but his productions take the elements to a new, higher level of techno. It isn’t quite classic Detroit nor is it purely house but what it most definitely is, is pure class.
