Kevin Over 'Back To Back Vol 11' (Mobilee Records)
Kevin Over delivers 12 upbeat house groovers for Mobilee’s 11th ‘Back To Back’ comp. Soulphiction’s stunning ‘2002’ dub sets the pace with sprinkling synths, before Jacob Korn’s ‘Shady’ rework layers percussive house over clapping hats and techno kicks. Of Over’s five original tracks, ‘Look At Me Sartre’ is the punchy highlight, while ‘Pfeffi Care’ becomes a funky mover. Later, he skews William Djoko’s ‘Satisfied’ into jagged tech-house and transfoms And.ID’s ‘Frozen’ into a hypnotic late-night trip. Marquis Hawkes’ monstrous techno remix of Over’s ‘Blue Ox’ is the standout, though, with its squelching acid lines, crashing synths and animalistic screams.
