REVIEW: RICHIE HELL presents GUMBO LIMBO REMIXES
Share This Article
RICHIE HELL flows his music around the world, with a sound that intoxicates the dance floor and our homes. Ella now she’s back, and she’s doing it on Sweat Records Miami with the remixes of “Gumbo Limbo Experiment”, on a journey that goes beyond psychedelia, directly to nightly rhythms.
Featuring reworks from Ursula 1000, Lonely C (Soul Clap), Each Other (Justin Strauss & Max Pask), Balam, Will Buck, Tüshen Rai & Cornelius Doctor and more; Side A is a sunny disco fantasy, while Side B is a more heady, lysergic experience. All of them are the most prolific and respected producers on the electronic scene, where they amply demonstrate that they have the strength and jump above the prevailing conventions, knowing how to avoid the most recurrent crudeness and darkness.
In addition, this work maintains a narrative line that shows that his compositions are not nihilistic, but are part of a process that, thanks to the mastery of its creators, is easy to enter. We could almost say that that punk attitude that runs through each song no longer belongs to young people, since maturity can also be their golden age. For this reason, the best thing about this work is not so much what it contains, but what it promises: taking the necessary balance, it is known that what has to come from Sweat Records Miami in the future will be even better.
