The on going and much loved Balearic Gabba Edits series continues in the capable hands of Enzo Elia once more. Here he serves up three new edits of classic house and techno form the late 80s and early 90s in his usual unique style. These tracks might be 20 years old. But edited as sympathetically as they have been, they’ve never sounded better.

The first track, Sueño Latino’s 1989 hit Luxuria is, in the hands of Elia, a slow burning journey through buried beats and glassy melodies that grow ever more prominent as the track continues. The whole thing is backlit with an ethereal synth glow until some classic sounding house percussion bubbles out and really gets things going. It’s hard to imagine a better way to start a set than with this.

Next up, Next up, another Andrea Gemolotto's production, Q Base’s Tango Beat was originally released in 1990. It’s a mesh of tropical toms and congas with shakers, tambourines and more all peppering the groove. The track needs its seven-minute length to fully unravel, teasing you with plenty of tension until a euphoric release finally comes courtesy of some bright and trance inducing chords.

Completing the trilogy of edits is So I Want To Say - Tatata originally by Endangered People in 1995. The kicks here are raw and firm, the percussion is classic techno and the jostling bassline injects the whole thing with a sense of restlessness that forces you to dance.

"If you didn't know, Hell Yeah is the Italian label hell-bent on releasing the best modern disco(ish) you can find. Sometimes it's blissed out and Balearic, sometimes it's squelchy and down-right weird and sometimes it's the sort of enlogated, tribal stuff that works dancefloors into a salacious frenzy" (Kristan J Caryl - DJ MAG January 2014) ... more
