Premiere: Prins Thomas – Sudaniyya

Originally due to hit the streets in November 2017, ‘C Cat Trance – Remixes Vol. 1‘ (from which we premiered JD Twitch’s desert melter ‘Dalbouka‘ months ago) has – like so many vinyls these days – seen its release date postponed by… half a year. Enough time for the equally anticipated second volume to be ready and drop simultaneously through Emotional Rescue and Malka Tuti‘s ever busy channels right in time for the festival season.

Taken from this second volume of variedly dancy and experimental reworks of John Rees Lewis’ (former member of Nottingham-based new wave act Medium Medium) project C Cat Trance – featuring the likes of Tel Aviv duo Red Axes, London’s Jamie Paton, Romanian staples Khidja and Borusiade, we’re glad to present Prins Thomas‘ stripped-down, mesmerising take on ‘Sudaniyya‘, initially released as the B-side to the 1988-released ‘Jinniyya‘ 12″.

Sweetening the entrancing bazaar-like bombast of the original, the Norwegian disco czar frames up a fine sample of his free-flowing style and complex sonic lacemaking. Built around an intricate skein of goblet drums, cowbells, kalimba notes, organic noises and distant vocal echoes, the track curls and unfolds hypnotically, successfully plunging you into a weird state of trance with its penetrating melodic ebb and flow and repetitive percussive onslaughts. Ace stuff.

C Cat Trance – Remixes Vol. 2 is released via Emotional Rescue and Malka Tuti on 4th June, pre-order a copy from Juno.
