Boomkat Product Review:
Swing Ting continue to establish broad parameters with an exceptional debut of Dembow rufige from ManColombian producer Florentino. If you've been checking Kamixlo, E+E/Elysia Crampton, Her Records, Príncipe, Deadboy - this 1's 4 U!
Five tracks wide, 'Tu Y Yo' ties up the roadwise sound of South America with a keen UK rudeness and flashes of a tender, romantic soul across a brace of rugged yet elaborate dancefloor killers.
'Mamasota' opens with a carnival-ready battery of batacuda drums, whistles and hollers, setting the levels for a set that twists back and forth from the Kraftwerkian cumbia of 'Llamada' - Señor Coconut eat your heart out - thru a truly blinding apex of choral synth voices and arpeggiated strings sounding like Actress or Visionist's Latino brother, to the technoid banger, 'Domina' and the killer play of helium vox and dark, acidic trance synths percolated in 'Perdido'.
