Boomkat Product Review:
Dark Entries pull another gem from their bag of tricks; this time The Pool’s minimal but fruity electro swinger, Dance It Down, and their new beat foundation, Jamaica Running, both replete with dubs and Nunk’s killer European mixes which were previously only found on the original Belgian 12” version.
The Pool was one-man electronic band, Patrick S. keel from Austin, TX. He wrote and released the hip-hop inflected rap and clipped strut of Dance It Down and it’s better looking sibling Jamaica Running in 1983, finding disco favour both at home in Texas and abroad on the most debonaire floors of benelux and beyond.
The biggest attractions here are Nunk’s wider, sharper mix of Dance It Down, tailored to the exacting needs of Belgian ‘floors, and likewise in the the B-side’s ineffably nonchalant Jamaica Running, whether in the rubber-footed original, knackered half speed mix, which is lit up with bright, wide FX in Nunk’s European mix.
