Kompakt has always been partial to Belgium as they have been tremendously loving to us...leading the charge of support have been our friends Mugwump – the dynamite duo that comprises of Geoffoy and the star of our show today – Kolombo. We’ve had a great strain of releases with them over recent times and many will remember Kolombo from a number of big tunes for Turbo, Vice Versa and Boxer Recordings. Kolombo pays tribute to the spirit of slo-mo Belgian New Beat with “Waiting For”. A 105 BPM driven concoction of classic house, Balearic disco lead by the voice of ‘80s pop maestro Howard Jones of his memorable hit “Everlasting Love” means yes, we have a winner! “Rescue Me” leads away from the sensationalist pop of “Waiting For” but shines in a disco-fied soaking of raucousness. Michael Mayer steps up and proves he still is on a winning streak of remixes, following changing up music for the likes of Shit Robot and WhoMadeWho and now with a take on Kolombo’s “Waiting For”. He embraces the grandeousness of the original, setting off with a stripped down classic Chicago house rhythm, slowly building it with BASS until you can’t see past the lights of the club ceiling then traveling to a paradigm of dance music that is absolutely sincere yet completely untouchable.
