Release on Emerald & Doreen Recordings:
“Amsterdam’s shaman DJs Kiki Toao & Rombout are back with a heavily pumping techno banger from the spiritual hyperspace, Djinn Disco.
Djinn “are supernatural creatures in early Arabian and later Islamic mythology and theology. They are not purely spiritual, but also physical in nature, being able to interact in a tactile manner with people and objects and they are also subject to bodily desires like eating and sleeping. Jinn mentioned in Middle Eastern folktales are often depicted as monstrous or magical creatures.” And this is how it sounds when they have a party.
Features a slowly chuggin and heavily groovin remix by San Francisco’s JP Soul, mastermind behind Roam Recordings who had successful releases on Nein Records, Whiskey Disco, Logical Records, a mesmerizing acidic remix by Facets, the man behind Samo Recordings and a pumping early morning club dub remix by Barcelona’s Daytona.”
Juno Download wrote a very nice review:
“Kiki Toao and Rombout follow last year’s Yama Disco release on Emerald & Doreen with this peak-time offering. In its original format, “Djinn Disco” is a tough, throbbing affair, imbued with ghostly shrieks, frazzled bass tones and wild acid licks.
It’s grimy and psychedelic, the sound track to a bunker party that goes on for days. Like the Yama Disco release, the label has commissioned a series of high-quality remixes to reshape the original track. JP Soul lowers the tempo and intensity levels to deliver a low-slung groover, while on the Daytona ‘Pure Amnesia’ take, the Dutch pair’s music is led down a driving techno alley way and the Facets remix focuses on a rolling tribal workout.”
