Berlin-based duo SHMLL serve up four sweet space-tastic disco cuts for the fifth editon of OYE Edits.
Having previously put out left-of-centre releases from the likes of Jonny Rock and DJ Uffe, the fifth 12″ in the edition stays true to the OYE formula – or lack of it. A whacked out synth-guitar mutant screams to the heavens above a juicy locked groove on ‘Andong’, and ‘Arnis’ brings the dark Middle Eastern vibes to the fore in a semitonic work-out that wouldn’t be amiss on Disco Halal.

The flip side is full of spacey percussive headmashery for restless feet and half-open eyes, a tribal call and response to mirror your inner circuit trip into discoid overload.
