Tee MangoTribute #2
Hand stamped & numbered.
500 copies only, no repress.
The 2nd in Tee Mango’s Tribute project, inspired by the much referenced
Theo Parrish quote:
Love of the music should be the driving force of any producer, performer or DJ.
Everything else stems from that core, that love. With that love, sampling can become a tribute; An expansion on ideas long forgotten, reconstruction, collage.
The project will take the form of audio and visual collage, with x5 vinyl releases and a selection of t-shirts coming via Mango’s Millionhands clothing brand.
Throw is the 1st track here, which manages to loop a refrain and bass that Candy Staton anthem, all the while sounding like a forgotten Moodymann MPC jam. Vocals, skipping snares, a bouncing tambourine & one of the finest bassline ever written (by someone else) compell you to dance.
Need Your Love is a heads down sample house jam. It’s looping vocal, super tight drums, woozy chord stabs and sirens make it feel like the result of a studio session between a 90’s dubbed out Louie Vega & man-like Switch (before he went feral).
