Alright, so this has been out for a bit – I figured if I went on holiday for two weeks in the middle of August it’d be a slow news fortnight as far as music was concerned but I return to an inbox busier than Gaddafi’s ‘inner compound’. One assumes the phrase ‘Latin Demon’ was intended to convey an olive-skinned Mr Lover Lover type rather than some leathery-winged denizen of hell obsessed with the difference between the dative and the locative in a dead language (“What’s this, then? “Romanes eunt domus”?”) as Telephunken has a crack at the fertile latin breaks genre. Indeed, it’s a wonder the ghetto-funking Spaniard hasn’t had a stab at it earlier (although technically he did as this is the ‘revisit’) as he does rather well with this poppy slice of ghetto-latin-funk that avails itself of ‘Mexican’ brass, castanets and acoustic guitar vamps and stays just the right side of ‘breakbeat Gypsy Kings territory’. Remixes come courtesy of heavyweight friends Basement Freaks, Funkanomics and Ursula1000.
