Gouranga’s popular Soundcloud channel has been a constant source of quality dance music over recent years. Their collaborations with the likes of Disco and House pioneers Todd Terje, Greg Wilson, Ray Mang, Rigopolar, Bill Brewster, JKriv and Dicky Trisco (to name a few) has established them as key tastemakers in the scene. They regularly pop up around the globe as curators and DJs and have been behind the programming of the Rabbit Hole Disco area at Glastonbury. Their recently launched label Gouranga Music takes things a step further, showcasing a range of electronic music that they are passionate about.
Dombrance is a French DJ and producer who has been releasing selective, highly regarded work for almost 20 years gracing labels like Kitsune, Virgin Records and Yuksek’s Partfine. The single ‘Taubira’ appeared exclusively via Gouranga’s channel two years ago and now returns for a full release with a stellar set of remixes.
The package opens with the hypnotic, arpeggiated excellence of the original before handing the reins to the assembled remix team. The mixes are bookended by two adaptations from new kid on the block Josh Ludlow who opens things with a powerful club edit with a deep, heady feel and closes out with a pumping 80’s Italo rework. Between these two variations, we have the ‘Clan Disko Dub’ from respected Slovenian producer Ichisan who teams up with the Gouranga Clan to go down a percussive & acidic route. Alongside this, Spain’s James Rod turns in an extended and intense revision that takes things into tripped out, late-night territory.
At the centre of all this is the jewel in an already gleaming crown as Norwegian Cosmic God Prins Thomas takes the track down a psychedelic bass trip – stretched out over a blissful eleven minutes to create something truly timeless.
