This is the second full-length release on BPitch Control by Berlin-based DJ and producer, Sascha Funke. After several 12" releases and remix projects, Sascha presents Mango, a fully-ripe evocation of the beauty of the six months he spent in Aix-en-Provence. Like it's forerunner Bravo, you won't hear 08/15 speed-techno with 140 bpm - but a fresh and direct, catchy sound that is the antidote to boredom. "Mango" and "We Are Facing the Sun" opens the release with warmth and "Feather" makes you picture elves dancing in a meadow. "Take a Chance with Me" builds it up, while "Summer Rain" cools things down. The gravelly-affected vocals on "Double Checked" are sung by Fritz Zander, and other guest musicians include Fritz Kalkbrenner and TimTim, whose sparsely twanged guitar creates a lot of space within the songs. "Lotre (Mehr Fleisch)" fits perfectly into the barbeque: The bass develops like embers and hides behind rhythms and sounds, until Sascha's vocals catch sparks. "Chemin Des Figons" is the beautiful street Sascha lived on a year ago in Aix-en-Provence, and you'll want to walk it again and again. Finally, "The Fortune Cookie" finishes everything off with a strident, harmonic sing-a-long that will fit everywhere, whether you're enjoying a nice day at the park or a crazy underground rave.
