The Maghreban returns to more familiar territory on this next 12" for Zoot. "Dynamite" kind of sounds mid sixties jingles record. Radio Caroline. John Peel, Tony Blackburn. Mid Range. Pneumatic open hats like steam being expelled down in the hull. "Calypso Christmas" - maybe some African notes here. More Dutch wax resist. Hand clapping. Wow and flutter. The hypnotic sound of confusion.
You wait ages for a new Gesloten Cirkel EP, then two come along at once! M-011 is marginally the more restrained of the pair but it's still a fantastically hairy, black-humoured ride through the hinterlands of acid-flecked techno/electro GC call home. On "Real Melbourne House" a distorted voice narrates the tale of a house DJ who only plays out in remote locations so he can steal revellers' cars while they're dancing.
