Nang powerhouse Sare Havlicek bursts back into the Synth-scape once more with the first track from his second Nang album. Sare is a firm favourite here in Nang towers and the mercurial, Slovenian dynamo has hardly stopped for breath since his last releases on Nang (A well deserved "New Masters" comp, a co-mix credit on Beach Disco and also as part of the Transatlantic Disco alliance EP)
Sare has been hard at work in his synth-museum studio this year and for the first single he teams up with Slovenian based,US singer Hannah Mancini. "Vibe On You" is very early 80's, very Imagination meets Delegation, very Nile and Bernie, very soulful and even adds a touch of Pino Palladino style fretless bass just for good measure. Hannahs vocals are sexy and as stylish as ever.
Nang being Nang we had to go over the top when it comes to remixes. We have crammed in 8 versions (and believe us, we even had to cull some…). Sare contributes an instrumental and a slowed down sexy, groovoid, pitch-bendy, 115 BPM version. His slyly retiled "Nothing You Can Do" version jumps forward 4 years to 1985, sounding like a long lost Stock-Aitken and Waterman extended 12" dance version.
We have also employed a trio of the most gifted remix acts around. Fellow Adriatic Funkster Ilija Rudman places his seal-of-authority on the sonics and gets brassed up. UK based head of Bear Funk Stevie Kotey pairs up with this lightning-fingered-keyboard neighbour Manestar to create a cool cross between Haddaway, Ten City and some late 1988 piano houser. Finally we take things in a housier direction with slick NYC scensters Drrtyhaze.
Stay tuned for Sare album number 2 early next year. We've heard it.. it's a goodie.
