Body Language 10


Get Physical's highly prolific Body Language mix CD series returns to M.A.N.D.Y. who started it all in 2005. Get Physical's iconic Body Language mixes have all functioned like snapshots in time, capturing defining moments of club sounds throughout the series' six-year history. For the 10th milestone edition of Body Language, Get Physical is going back to its roots, and back to its origins, placing Body Language Vol. 10 in the gifted hands of Philip Jung & Patrick Bodmer, best known as M.A.N.D.Y. -- Get Physical co-founders, lifelong friends, masterful DJs and expert selectors. Through deep, thrumming tech house, vocal excursions, Detroit electro, touches of disco and smatterings of downtempo, M.A.N.D.Y. demonstrate yet again why they are so in-demand on the international club and festival circuit. Starting with the thundering piano chords and jazz percussion of Brandt Brauer Frick's "Paparazzi" they seamlessly mix into the pensive melodies and underwater trumpet of Nicolas Jaar's remix of Maceo Plex's "Gravy Train," which then bleeds into the deep swing, disco bass and cowbells of Kid Bliss' "Discoshit." Extrawelt's deep dub tones on "My Stupid" make for an unexpectedly harmonious union with "Home," an exclusive cut from M.A.N.D.Y. vs. Booka Shade that marks the foursome's first collaboration in several years. The Latin percussion and uplifting synth melody of Elon's "Clap Back" breaks free, racing towards a hands-in-the-air peak. Carl Craig's storming rework of Ramadanman & Appleblim's "Void 23" is a perfectly-pitched follow-up, and Roman Flügel's remix of Darabi's "Top Drop" takes it into sinister territory with flares and smears that break the melodic accents out of their boundaries. After taking a sharp left turn into the murky industrial sounds of Brendon Moeller's "Mainline" (Robag's Relokk Tokk Mikks), the deep drama is juxtaposed by DJ Koze's trademark eccentricity, as "Der Wallach" bumps with loose-limbed jazziness and quirky arrangements. Patrice Bäumel's electro-inspired "To Insanity And Beyond" marks a new chapter, and paves the way for Detroit pioneers Model 500, with their jacking electro breaks number. More programming surprises abound, as the broken beats melt into the deep funk of "Thieve $crilla" by Soul Clap. De Signer follows, with a Robin Porter & Subb-an treatment followed by Franck Roger's "Egotrippin" and Harada's "Conscious Movement." M.A.N.D.Y. proceed to take it deep underground with Marc Houle's wintry and otherworldly "The Next," before lightening the mood again with a snippet of Nicolas Jaar's "Space Is Only Noise If You Can See." The shimmering electronica melodies of Estroe's "Phat" Remix of Rocco Caine's "Fatand 50" gleam and shine, before the track and the mix are pitched down into the suspenseful swan song, Kollektiv Turmstrasse's "Addio Addio." Body Language Vol. 10 is an immersive, intriguing and irresistible snapshot in time of two undisputed veterans of house and techno who will forever remain at the top of their game.
