  • Description "Aventuras" is, if anything, even more full-on and immediate than "Everybody I got Him" and "1992". Pushed ahead by a slippery, shaker-heavy percussive groove and a booming, sub-bass throb, it's a no-nonsense command to move. Celebratory, call-and-response cheers draw the dancers together, and African vocal loops increase the intensity level, spinning spellbinding shapes in the air as they gradually unfurl. With rat-a-tat snare fills and tricky blasts of white noise and reverb, the track is one long, extended build-up. DJs beware: anything you play next is bound to sound anticlimactic.

    "Madrugada," meaning "early morning" in Spanish, accordingly dials things down a notchbut not too much! The wordless, sing-song chants are perfect for those post-dawn hours, their phased tones and elliptical loops dragging you deep into a hypnotic zone. But the groove is powerful enough to keep things moving well past mediodía, with cracking snares, shuffling hi-hats and a smattering of carefully tuned percussion
    leading you through seven and a half minutes of delicious, delirious tension and release.

    As these two certified burners prove, back-to-basics house music is alive and thriving. And while he's been around the block a time or two, this essential double-A-side release confirms Mendo's status as an artist on the rise.
