Luna City Express – Magic Bazar
incl. Matthias Tanzmann Remix
The influential German duo of Marco Resmann and Norman Weber return to their most frequent home for a new EP of typically floor facing house music, complete with a devastating remix from label head Matthias Tanzmann. Luna City Express sure do know how to rock a party, and they have done for almost the last decade at the finest underground establishments around the world.First track here, Magic Bazar, is a no nonsense bomb from the off. Rooted in a dirty groove it bounces tautly until an obscured male voice sets everything on fire. It’s impossible not to imagine heads bobbing in unison to this one.Moon Harbour boss Matthias Tanzmann’s remix is a much more riotous affair, with rough edged percussion, angry claps and snares and a trippy melody all bristling around each: crowds will be in a controlled frenzy, for sure.There’s a touch of garage-y Kerri Chandler percussion to Are You Ready, which ducks and dives on a thick bassline, full of futuristic robot energy. It’s functional yet fun, and so is the lush last track I Don’t Think So. Full of warm, bright synths, old school broken beat energy and a hip hop looseness, it’s full of joy and puts a lot of stale modern house music to shame. This is the latest chapter in a long relationship between Moon Harbour and Luna City Express and it’s one that provides discerning DJs with plenty of firepower.
