Boomkat Product Review:
Deep otherworldly house from Stockholm.
"Simonetti played a gig with Jaja in Stockholm a couple years ago and they've kept in touch ever since. He was drawn to his DJ style - not being afraid to mix genres and take chances. He wrote Jaja and asked for tracks. It was that easy. Sometimes you can just tell there is something there from a thing as simple as a DJ set. This is the first release of theirs and there'll be more to follow soon, keep an ear out.
Saine & Smith consists of Jaja Saine and Leo Smith. Deep otherworldly house from Stockholm. Two talented DJs/producers from Stockholm. Both are diaspora kids - Jaja Saine’s background is in West Africa and Leo’s in Barbados. So their debut release is a kind of heritage reflection, with twisted elements of decadent Scandinavian dance music, which echoes generally in their sound.
A. Lord Vanlig – Inspired from Afro-Caribbean traditional folk music from the 60s. A melodramatic blend of cheer and sorrow. With capturing and repetitive drums combined with a compact kick and sweet overlay of melodious keys and child laughter.
B. Sir Viktig – A deep house banger with haunting ghost-like pads, catchy Afrobeat samples and vocal snippets.”
