Boomkat Product Review:
Maluco is the collective pseudonym for the collaborative work of Max Loderbauer, Pier Bucci and Argentis Brito. They've previously appeared on the Kalk Pets imprint with an EP of understated house minimalism paying respect to their South American and German roots. Here they're remixed by three very talented ladies. Swiss native Sonja Moonear's Soul Friction remix of 'Evandro' is an impressive proposition, following in a similar vein to her intricately detailed work as half of Junction SM with Dandy Jack, she creates a trippy blue atmosphere with frothy melodics and an effortlessly fluid rhythm leading to an unexpected but welcome twist. Dinky's mix of 'Sam' is another highlight, driven by dripping subs and developing an exotically florid and crafty rhythm from the same school as Luciano or Villalobos. Finally Chica Paula, aka Chica and the Folder with Max Loderbauer, rolls out the sublimely relaxed and neatly funky 'Right Time' with the right blend of pop mixed with a defined dancefloor ambition. Smart tracks for lovers of the upper-end European minimal-house sound. Ace.
