Maribou State – “Tongue” – [Southern Fried Records]
Maribou State is Chris Davids and Liam Ivory, specializing in jazzy and more modern deep house with their own releases as well as remixes of other tracks. This EP has three versions of the Tongue track of which two are actually not remixed by them. Well, this is trip-hop like deep house with some fascination with loungy piano/electrical piano jazz chords and sultry female voices. It should work fine in a bar in San Francisco that is close to the OM Records label. Gentle dance music, too gentle. The remixes are somewhat more adventurous even if we are not dealing with left-field production trickery.
