WPW007 The Cruising - Dispassion 27.04.20 ◉ OUT on Whiskey Pickle ◉ The Cruising’s two cool customers, Yula Vovk and Sergei Demidov, make a remarkable return to Whiskey Pickle, and this time around on the label’s vinyl department. Even as Russians their original tune “Dispassion” has an NYC underground retro-futurism. Their blues vocal sampler, impressive bassline, and impeccable drum programming conjure an Arthur Russell guitar fascination and a cosmic disco weirdo Balearic rhythm exploration.
Malinovsky’s version is centered on a dusty deeper affair. The result is a soft percussive, melancholic remix with a darker synth-scape and intensely psychedelic Eastern echoes.
