<p>After a first incursion on Stuart Leath’s [Emotional] Especial last year, the mysterious Alphonse returns with ‘Smokey‘, a four-track transmission featuring reworks from in-fashion French duo The Pilotwings and sure-handed junglist DJ Normal 4.</p>
<p>Actually a well-known London based producer under guise, Alphonse here interlards the pared-down devoutness of tribal chants and primitive percs with the blazing lustre of synthesized disco from outer space on ‘Smokey‘. On the flip, ‘Glint AM‘ veers off into spaced-out rave mode, flexing supple synth stabs and chromatic pads up and under roaring breaks onslaughts.</p>
<p>Melding both vibes in one, The Pilotwings‘ revamp of the lead-track acts as a straight-up meditative uplifter, aligned with the spirit of their own productions. Meshing the classic put-putting drum programming and stretched-out synth spans of early atmospheric jungle with the African richness of Alphonse original’s earth-revering canon, this one hits the pleasure spot on several levels. Hypnotic.</p>
