- There's a palpable Brazilian bounce across Fabo's two original mixes on his debut for Brooklyn's Stranjjur. At the title track's core—a vibrant vocal house march—are rattling synths that cascade down like marbles on a tray and a grinding bassline through which surf guitars are entwined. In comparison to the mechanical funk of "Where I Stand," the liquid house sound of "You Found Me" evolves more organically behind snake-hipped bass, twinkling vibes and Rhodes.
But the EP leads with the Karmon remix of "Where I Stand" for a reason. The Dutch producer fashions a deliciously kitsch '80s synth pop/cosmic disco mash-up. Building from a vocal seemingly lifted to the surface from within a full bathtub, Karmon fires digital bullets into the air with abandon, before unleashing a pack of stabbing Korgs and vicious 808 handclaps into the melee. Sailing just the right side of camp, it's ridiculously good fun.
