A1. Rayko – Die For You
B1. The Glue – A Broken Heart
This much hyped Rayko track gets a super cool 12″ split-release with the romantic newcomers The Glue on the flip. Believe the hype, this is a monster!
Untz Untz unleash their third release, and this time its a shiny red love disc.
First up is the spanish edit don Rayko, known from releases on labels such as Eskimo, Kojak Giant Sounds, Lumberjacks In Hell… and of course his own Rare Wiri label. He is known for crunching out 2-3 great edits every week. This edit must really have struck a chord with the Untz Untz guys leading to them begging on their knees for it the same day it appeared on his Soundcloud. On his ‘Die For You’ edit he slaps on a old school disco bassline on top of the purple smurf that we all love. Resulting in taking him straight to the club peak-time, saturday night style. This is made for a dancefloor!
On the flip we see the slow-mo-house-disco duo The Glue. Little is known about these mystic newcomers other than that they are based in Bergen, Norway and that they are very much into r’n'b and soul music. This edit came about after finding it in a box of 600 7″s from the 80s/90s that they bought for almost nothing at a flea market. On the ‘A Broken Heart’ edit they are carefully building up a cosy mood before dropping in the vocals half-way through this 9 minute heartbreaking song. And then finishing it of with a man softly cooing ‘I Love You, Don’t Ever Break My Heart’. Lets hope its not true that: A Broken Heart Can’t Mend.
The 12" has gotten thumbs up from among others:
Greg Wilson (UK) - "Nice release. Wouldn't mind a wav of the Rayko track"
Dr Dunks aka Eric Duncan (Rub N Tug/Still Going/DFA/NYC) - "Sound great!"
Sleazy Beats Recordings - "Slice of pure loveliness. Have a listen, and tell me - how can you just not love this?"
Duff Disco (UK) - "I like 'A Broken Heart' nice edit there!"
Touchsoul (UK) - "Where to start. Rayko is on fire with this release. A mix Prince should be proud of and Alexander O'Neal's early 80's soul groover sublimely done to great slow mo disco effect by The Glue. Will be getting play from me and well worth the purchase..."
Dirk (Mindless Boogie/Smile) - "Aaahh, Killer edits!"
Juno Records (UK) - "Complementing the growling arpeggios of Rayko is The Glue, whose B Side bomb is strictly for the lovers!"
Piccadilly Records (UK) - "Untz Untz come up with two monster reworks back to back, and on red vinyl too! It's a big hurrah that these peeps still believe in vinyl, so make sure you grab a copy quick."
