D Edge Records is back with another fresh offering, this time from Mumbaata & Leo Janeiro. The talented Brazilian pair formed by Lennox Hortale and Pedro Paulo Poyart, together with Leo Janeiro offer up two cuts that are sure to make their mark on the right dance floors. A remix from Get Physical manager Roland Lessker closes out the package in fine style. Artists are from Rio de Janeiro and are truly taste making in Brazil. They have worked together on some killer remixes before now. They prise spiritual melodies and slick percussion highly and these new tracks prove that once more. Kunta Kinte opens things with six elastic minutes of warm and rubbery house. Twinkling keys and jazzed up piano chords add real charm to the grooves as the drums tumble down low. Take Off is then a more stripped back and moody track that builds through dubby chords and rolling drums. It is sombre and atmospheric and laced with soft acid lines that really finish it off. Last but not least, German DJ, Marketing Director of Virgin Music Germany and Managing Director of Get Physical Music Roland Leekser steps out with a fresh remix that reworks the track into something more spaced out and driving. Like a late night train it pushes through the night and sweeps you up with it as neon lights and skewed chords fly by. This is top notch club music for those who know. ***
