Sweden’s BAMBOOK and the spaniard JAVIER ORDUNA take their joint production game to a whole new level on the forthcoming Paloma / Burundanga. Burudunga is more of a live-set than a single track. Funk deep bass, ghostly vocal cuts, Burning Man like ethnic rhythms, hypnotic piano stabs are all woven together and constantly changing for the entire duration of the track’s seven minutes. Out this friday on Culprit together with the A-side Paloma and Eduardo De La Calle & Quina on the remix duties.
Artist: Bambook & Javier Orduña

Culprit brings its 2016 to a close with the melodically refined release by Bambook & Javier Orduña. “Paloma” is a deeply felt tribute to Javier’s late wife. Ethereal, wistful and expressive the EP’s two original songs are authentic to their unique emotional content, while showcasing the collaborators’ shared artistic sensibility.
Intertwining minor key melodies, ghostly female vocals, memorable bassline hooks and fluid percussion unite the gentle “Paloma” and the more propulsive “Burundanga.” As Quina, Eiad of Bambook and Emilio Areas, a Miami-based artist, rework the title track into a moody deep techno cut, with a cascading organ riff and a darker bassline pad that adds to a sense of foreboding.
Culprit also continue their recent Spanish motif with the remix by Eduardo De La Calle – one of the most interesting producers to emerge from Spain in the last few years. De La Calle stays true to “Paloma’s” emotionally charged feel, while adding his inimitable analogue minimalistic techno touch.
