Review de "Spanish Is Beautiful" en la revista DJ Mag de UK!

DJs Pareja
Spanish Is Beautiful (History Clock)

The History Clock is most certainly alive and ticking with this incredible release from porteños duo, DJs Pareja. You may be familiar with some early tracks that they've done for Matias Aguayo's peerless Comeme label, and this is a perfect follow-up. Balearic music fans will fall in love with the very appropriately-titled lead track in both original and Alejandro Paz remix formats, followed by the brilliant EBM-shocker, 'Psycho Rhythm'. Concluding, is the absolutely perfect tropical-ghetto rhythm of 'Pampa Moom' that will no doubt crossover from the bumbumbox parties of Buenos Aires to the Boiler Room nights in London.

Review de "Spanish Is Beautiful" en Juno Plus UK!

Since its inception in 2008, London label History Clock have always operated well beyond the confines of genre pigeon holing – quite happily releasing main roomrevisions of late 70s sing alongs from Ivan Smagghe & Tim Paris alongside disco nuggets from Psychemagik and throbbing techno pulsers and EBM makeovers of Frankie Goes To Hollywood from Hardway Bros.

Given that History Clock is overseen by Nathan Gregory Wilkins and Joanthan “Capracara” Burnip makes this all encompassing approach understandable. The former has a long history of playing obscure records to the fashion set and was recently invited to spin some jams at David Lynch’s new Parisian joint, whilst the latter can count labels as varied as DFA, Fine Art, Soul Jazz and Unknown To The Unknown in his discography, and both have musical tastes that can be considered in a state of musical flux.

This much is evident on their latest twelve – their first in almost a year – which features the talents of Argentinean duo DJs Pareja. Close followers of Cómeme will know the duo from their 2009 split EP with label boss Matias Aguayo and this i a mighty if belated follow-up. “Psycho Rhythm” is singularly unique mid tempo house, splaying off kilter syncopation and deep set bass with heaving melodic hits and quite unnerving lyrics, whilst “Pampa Moon” perfectly captures the tropical rhythms of South America with the gritty drum patterns of London.

On the flip “Spanish Is Beautiful” is a gloopy, astral warehouse bumper – all loose, shimmering keys and crashing drum rolls over the heady acid throb. It’s given a glistening 4am rerub by Huntleys & Palmers’ Alejandro Paz, which could feasibly have emerged during the early days of Balearic.

En el diario The Guardian de UK!

Huntleys & Palmers, London

Established just under four years ago in Glasgow, Huntleys & Palmers – named not as a homage to the biscuit-makers, but after the codenames used for homosexuals and prostitutes in the 1957 Wolfenden report – are club promoters dealing in quality underground house music with a Latin or African street flavour. Huntleys & Palmers' latest indoor carnival takes place tonight at Dalston's Shacklewell Arms, starring Argentina's DJs Pareja. Signed to Matias Aguayo's Cómeme label, the duo are renowned in their homeland for their vigorously eclectic jacking house sets. Able support is provided by Auntie Flo, whose excellent kwaito-esque releases on Huntleys & Palmers' in-house label have been hammered this year by everyone who matters, from Pearson Sound to Ricardo Villalobos. Let's hope the Shacklewell bar is well stocked with Quilmes and Fernet.
