Aka Aka`s own label, Burlesque Musique, is always a source of good music if you like the sounds created by the German duo. As I really dig their techno, I decided to add this first EP in my collection. 4 songs, one original and 3 remixes.
You will not be disappointed by this. The original has it all, strong percussion, funny "drunken-style" vocals, trumpets and other sounds that create this happy techno song, good to listen to a party no matter the degree of alcohol in your system. It actually reminds me of Noze and Riva Starr`s I was Drunk. Surely Goran Bregovic would sound like this if he made electronica. Hanne & Lore remix is more minimalistic, focusing more on the drums and the actual vocals, that appear in the middle of the song. The Broombeck remix is more techno oriented than the original, containing more electronic elements and effects and also an awesome bass-line. The view of Philip Bader is more deep due to the duo created by the sad trumpet and the bass keys, a very interesting perspective that differs from the happiness of the rest of the EP. In the end all I can say is that you must listen to this:
