The relationship between Calypso and Vilnius is quite strong. This is why this time they invited local talent Plot Pilot to share a release with label boss Thomass Jackson. The A side is Jackson’s time to deliver his two edits. First one is a bongo driven, afro robotic vocals, breakish trance extravaganza. While the second one goes straight for the chin with it’s vocals who command you to work work work! The Lithuanian boys, Plot Pilot, deliver a cosmic bomb full of psychedelic guitars and bleepy noises on their first one and for the second one the pay tribute with a to the Lithuanian seaside where every summer the famous Ant Bangos festival takes place.
After the sold-out first edition of Correcciones, Mexican label Calypso returns with Volume 2 of the series, unveiling four strong contenders for Edit of the Year. Starting things off, Calypso co-label boss Thomass Jackson has his way with a weirdo Polish jazz/fusion/funk track that keeps turning left while continually finding the right direction. Russian label regulars Simple Symmetry join forces with co-label boss Inigo Vontier to deliver a ”monster peak-time mantra” that’s as perfect for morning rites as it is for nocturnal adventures. On the B-side, New York’s Facets slows down the tempo of an old goa gem. Volume 2 closes out in the hands of Italian dandys Marvin & Guy, who offer a magnificent take on a forgotten disco classic.
