The fifth instalment from Mehmet Aslan and Miajica’s (Alma Negra) Fleeting Wax imprint, DJ and edit don Jonny Rock travels east to unleash a hot slab of re-edits. From the slung bassline of ‘Radio Morocco’ (an edit of the Jah Wobble-featuring ‘Pulse 8’) to the soaring opening melodies of ‘Housey Mousey’, the whole EP conjures up shifting desert dunes. Standout track ‘Yab Yum’ pits tweaking synths against flittering hi-hats, but it doesn’t take long to descend into an all-out bonkers percussive jam. Sitting flush atop a jacking bassline, soaring Middle Eastern vocals, honking sax and searing guitar riffs bob and weave in and out of one another, competing for centre stage.
