This post is long overdue as this EP was released more than a month ago, but I had to mention this being a big fan of hyper-active Spoek Mathambo who joined forces here with another South African - DJ Fuck (otherwise known as Sibot) to form a banging duo of Playdoe. The more so as the remixers of original tax include the producers I really dig, i.e. Chris de Luca, Illstm or Kaptain Cadillac. The Ice Cream original virtually drips with lascivious playfulness of Spoek and Chi Chi's vocals, while DJ Fuck created ass-shaking, stomping beat. Champoon is more of a classic hip-hop ting and Spoek does his job perfectly again! Though, it seems that his ranting skills are used in every second track I heard recently, I am far from being fed up with this talented South African boy. With quite a big bunch of remixes, the stylistic range is huge, from electro bangers (e.g. zol and illstm, square tune magician or digital figher) through heavy-bass dubstep trips (riot kid) and a really strange collage of guitar strings and booty juke house treatment by kaptain cadillac to hard to describe chris de luca's dancefloor smashing double feature. But the real highlight of this relase is one of the most frequently played tracks on my car's sound system this month - i.e. the remix by a French producer D.L.i.d. A real ANTHEM!! One of the best tracks I've heard this year.
