Houn Pierre – Mansou Djouwi (The Reflex Edit) [Ivory Coast/UK]

Edit master The Reflex branches out a bit with some Ivory Coast action. This is a lively track. If it’s got one thing it’s EN-ER-GY. Like all of The Reflex’s revisions, this is mixed to perfection: gritty and packing a punch. It has some soulful saxophone and a mean bassline, but the percussion is really what drives the track along. Incessant hi-hats and some outstanding fills means this is a rollercoaster ride from start to finish. There are some nice climaxes as well when the production lets the saxophone wash out a bit and things get a bit dubby. One for the peak time.
