‚The Cruising’s two cool customers, Yula Vovk and Sergei Demidov, make a remarkable return to Whiskey Pickle, and this time around on the label’s vinyl department. Even as Russians their original tune ‚Dispassion‘ has an NYC underground retro-futurism. Their blues vocal sampler, impressive bassline, and impeccable drum programming conjure an Arthur Russell guitar fascination and a cosmic disco weirdo Balearic rhythm exploration.

Malinovsky’s version is centered on a dusty deeper affair. The result is a soft percussive, melancholic remix with a darker synth-scape and intensely psychedelic Eastern echoes.

Rune Lindbæk’s talent and versatility completes the space between duets undefined DIY disco and house’s general spectrum. His mix is a mesmerizing Balearic house reflection of the original. The Phil
Harding-wise rhythm supported by an atmospheric trumpet and original’s strings escapism.‘
