Gal Aner and Jordan Czamanski aka Juju & Jordash from Amsterdam are longtime favourites of ours and we are very proud to present them finally on Philpot! This 12inch contains their psychedelic-kraut-techno “Tattoo’s Island” in three fantastic cuts! The original is a tension-laden epic rising like a hot tropic thunderstorm leaving you electrified to the bone. The dub version strips it down a bit and changes the tone mid-track to a more techy-edge - spiritual, snaredriven and dubbed out to oblivion. Tom Trago’s „Lost In The Jungle“ remix gives the track a whole new twist, the storm is over and here comes the sun! Enjoy your summer and see you back in september!

Great record. All three mixes are dope; I think my faves are the dub and then the Trago. Excellent!

Listening to records by Juju & Jordash, the term "dance music" doesn't really spring to mind. The tempo might fit the mold (if a little slow), but the beat itself is too simple and utilitarian, as if its only purpose is to lend structure to the jazzy, free-form shapes that swirl around it. This was particularly true on their self-titled full-length from last year, and only a bit less so on Tattoo's Island, their first 12-inch on Philpot, an imprint that often supports such meanderings. "Tattoo's Island" is light on funk and heavy on abstract imagery—a psychedelic mess of sound, anchored by a 4/4 pulse. The EP presents three different versions of "Tattoo's Island": two by the duo themselves, and one remix by Dutch artist Tom Trago. The two J&J mixes are similar: Plodding rhythms, soaring keys and looping bass melodies are all treated with lots of reverb and delay. Both sport a clear krautrock influence, helped in no small part by guitar leads that seem to melt beneath the whammy bar. In his remix, Tom Trago tries to whip things into shape, doing away with most of the trippy stuff to make room for a punchy beat and catchy synth line. It's a nice track, and one that's much easier for DJs to kick around, but it lacks the vivid quality of its counterparts. Like so much of Juju & Jordash's music, "Tattoo's Island" favors weird charisma over funkiness, and that only makes it more worthwhile

"I love Juju & Jordash because their music defies easy classification. (It’s all just really, really good.) “Tattoo’s Island” is a breath of fresh air in a summer of few distinctive singles. The beat is bouncy and infectious. Snares seem distant shots, treble synths swirl like sea mammals, and an old-school bassline buoys it all. The Tom Trago remix re-uses the bass sound for slow-building tech-house. It’s a decent club mix, but nowhere near as lovable as the original. Thankfully, Juju & Jordash provide a fantastic dub. Reverberation creates syncopation, a la Mr. Finger’s famous “Mystery of Love” dub. Strings moan in darkness. Claps are otherworldly, while electronic voices coo. These are the kinds of bizarre, original sounds I truly love to hear on a big sound system. Come on DJs, make me happy." Written by Jacob Arnold
