- Mi Fella
- Mi Fella (Ramon Tapia Remix)
Since Gem Records first released their massive house track ‘All Night’ back in 2010 Kaap De Goede Hoop have been perfecting their production skills. Analogue synths and drum machines, tape recorders and effects have been collected to create an impressive mad scientists lab. Kaap De Goede Hoop team up with John Mood and Eversines to create the epic dark live recorded ‘363A’. On the flipside we find the beautiful warm energetic ’Mi Fella’. Ramon Tapia added his signature pumping sound to the remix!
After a two year stop Gem decided there could be no better EP for Gem to return to pressing vinyl than this analogue tape recorded Kaap De Goede Hoop jam. “When we were putting together 363A everything just fell in to place” Kaap de Goede Hoop’s Bobby van Putten says. “We spent an entire evening programming the equipment and tweaking with Robbert van der Bildt (also Kaap De Goede Hoop) John Mood and Eversines in the studio. After that we just hit record and started playing. Originally the track was close to 13 minutes long. All we changed afterwards was cutting a piece out to keep the energy up during the track. Everything else was spontaneous!”.
Mi Fella (as in Fela Kuti), was created with afrobeat in mind. The deep subby bass line rattling hats and high pitched chanting combined with echoey guitar sounds make for an amazing combination and a an absolutely unique track. Ramon Tapia complements the release with his more controlled yet equally energetic clean but rough sounding remix!
