After a killer 12 inches from Mori Ra, Jongno Edits is back with two tunes, blurring the lines between editing and sampling.
The A-Side, 42 Below, is an uplifting Korean Fusion Boogie with slap bass, tropical synths, summery guitar and female vocals. Given a serious dub work out by Monsieur Jongno. Effortlessly working the bassline and guitar with added muscle, subtle dub FX's, drum fills, teasing the vocal and synths before unleashing the chorus and guitar solos. Nice Brazilian vibes on this one, like a Lincoln Olivetti production, Seoul went Rio.
On the flip side, Drums and a Bass is an obscure LP cut from a Korean Percussion Ensemble with Traditional Korean folk elements, tribal drums and chanting, spikey avant garde guitar plucks, rolling punk funk bassline that builds the energy levels with Jazz style vocals and horns. Sounding very Liquid Liquid, a bit Can, a bit Pig Bag, with some Korean craziness. Expertly extended and re-arranged by the Jongno edits main man to give it more of a dancefloor edge, and ramping up the psychedelics. Powerful stuff.
