with another 12“ full of exotic deep house vibes sure to light up dance floors everywhere.
It’s an impressive follow-up to his genuinely well-received ”Brazuca“ single from earlier in the year.
On the A side, Sid delivers ”Na Na Yé“, a driving cut with a pulsing bass line and hypnotic African chant
that pushes the tune forward before getting flipped into a percussive section alongside deep and subtle synths.
On the flip ”Manouche“ can be found, a late night house tune with psychedelic Balkan guitars and swirling
Gypsy vocal samples punctuating the track.
Rounding out the single, Valencian producer Oscar Barila (Plastic City, Kling Klong) gives ”Manouche”
a truly funky remix with a squelchy ’80s ‘new wave’ style bass line, thumping house beat, and irresistible
synth work coming together for a real after hours nightclub workout supported by artists such as Arts & Leni – Rick Preston (Viva / Nervous) – Marques Wyatt (Deep L.A) – Makossa (Makossa & Megablast) – Mike Gill (Wolf+Lamb)
