Sauce81 - S8100 - Nervous Breaks and Galactique Beatstrumentals Selected and Edited by DJ Kensei

Ultra Vybe Records

DJ Kensei is a legendary DJ who's career spans back to the eighties. He's best known for his hip-hop mixtapes during the nineties as well as his abstract project Indopepsychics. he selected some tracks from sauce81's album "S8100" and officially re-edited them for this 12" as "S8100 - Nervous Breaks & Galaaactique Beatstrumentals" Selected & Re-Edited by DJ Kensei". DJ Kensei puts his stamp on these tunes and transforms them into an a stimulating collection of hip-hop, funk and house grooves. The disc kicks off the brooding hip-hop grooves of "Departure". "Moonlight" follows up with the same tempo, this time with Sauce81's swaying falsetto vocal harmonies. "Escape" is a body shaking boogie tune. "5D" is instrumental funk with warped synths. There's plenty of grooves to make you move here and is definitely worth checking out. Kensi takes a pile of tunes and turns them into gold.
