Boomkat Product Review:
Yes ayyye! Paris-based Promesses come into their own with an infectious batch of Kwaito styles coaxed from Limpopo, South Africa’s DJ Call Me, and so titled after the WhatsApp number they used to find him
After getting hooked on DJ Call Me’s neon-coloured melodies and elastic electro-bass via YouTube, where his tracks posted by fans have millions of views, Promesses’ Samos & Härdee managed to track him down for this release and the good of the dance via WhatsApp number ‘+27 73 121 5626’.
All recorded 2009-2010, the tunes are pure fire, full of limb-bending, belly-twysting synth funk shackled by UKF-compatible clap/snare patterns and good times melodies, at best between the burning sensation ‘Celebration’, the virulent leads and lush pads of ‘Face To face’, the darker blue vibes of ‘Return of DJ Call Me’ and ‘Say Goodbye’, and the Calypso-esque heat of ‘Mama I’m Sorry’.
A big RIYL Errorsmith, S.A. Bubblegum, and the more electro-tinged ends of UKF
