Tracks from Buenos Aires french expat Douster have been around on everybody’s hard disks and playlists for ever, but thanks to Sound Pellegrino and Dan Haaksman’s Man Recordings it is now Douster’s time. He is finally getting actual official releases. With “For Weirdos Only” and “Freak Mode”, Douster moves one step away from his early banging fidget works to venture into pure house territory, and the result is a wonky banjo joyride backed with a jacking burst of pure energic groove. Warm and cold, perfect for the early summer days when you can hang out in a tee shirt all day but still have to wear a jacket at night.
We asked Das Glow from Institubes (Sound Pellegrino’s proud “big brother label”) to remix “For Weirdos Only” and in typical Das Glow fashion he named the first draft “Doustin Hoffman” and the second one “Doustin Timberlake”. With his final file, he attached a picture of Mr. Potato Head dressed up as a Halloween ghost.
On the virtual flip, Momma’s Boy (Trouble and Bass alumni Mikix The Cat‘s housier alias) provides a slow-boiling party-starting version of “for weirdos” ideal for hula hoop training sessions that also works as an introduction to Momma’s Boy’s forthcoming EP on Sound Pellegrino.
