LPZ - 1983 by LPZ (LOPEZ) published on 2012/04/15 22:08:46 +0000 LPZ 1983 EP Body Work 14.05.12 Detroit, Chicago, New York, London, Paris… All have played a part in the evolution of this thing we call house music. Well ladies and gentlemen of the dancefloor it’s time to widen our horizons and add the capital of Paraguay*, Asuncion to that list for today we present to you our latest release, the 1983 EP, straight from the studio of LPZ, Latin America’s hottest export since Gisele Bundchen. Coming to our attention via remixes for labels such as Tirk and several more hip-hop releases (produced under the name Lopez) on the London Keep Up imprint (and on a forthcoming Ninja Tune compilation), the 1983 EP sees them ditch the vowels and make a move in a more 4/4 direction. First up we have the EP’s title track. 1983, guaranteed to see shares in Lino companies go through the roof as its body-popping, electro-shocking, acid boogie heralds a breakdance revival that thankfully has nothing to do with Ashley Banjo. Track 2, Mafia (Dub), is a lazer precisioned piece of late night dancefloor engineering, in fact choice anecdote for you here, our mastering engineer (and all round top DJ Rob Pearson) was moved to call us up mid session to ask if he could play it out that very night. We’ll take that as proof we’re doing something right… Finally completing the EP we have Snake & Butterfish, which stretching for the automatic adjective generator we’re going to call ‘slow-mo dubby Arabic acid house’, we suggest you take a listen and then just slap your own ‘Rocking Down the Casbah’ headline on any cover feature you’re planning.
