SWEAT X - I'm That Alley

SWEAT X - I'm That Alley (Citinite) While there's been a flurry of interest in the South African house scene in the last 12 months (mainly due to the success of DJ Mujava) fairly little has actually reached our shores that's worth mentioning, until Sweat.X came along. Interestingly, the group is helmed by Markus Smit, nee Markus Wormstorm, who turned out a terrific EP for Sound.Ink many moons ago, but now makes a glitchy club racket with Spoek Mathambo for Citinite. Their style on 'I'm That Alley' sounds like a deep fried fusion of Chromeo and Jamie Lidell, while 'The Knife' ramps up to electro-house stomper territory with a sound like Rex The Dog humping Modeselektor's leg. All the beatheads, however, should be paying attention to the swinging drums and untethered synthlines of Mike Slott's psychy remix of 'I'm That Alley', rounding off a tasty set of club tracks. in boomkat [Para Ouvir/Samples]
