Jatoma "Little Houseboat (Kenton Slash Demon Remix)"
- Words: Patric Fallon
The elusive Jatoma trio (pictured above) released its self-titled debut full-length of precious, intricately made ambient house music earlier this month via Kompakt, and here, we're treated to a remix of the album's bubbling opener, "Little Houseboat," from Copenhagen's Kenton Slash Demon. The production duo remains true to the percolating vibe of Jatoma's tune, as they leave the softly boiling synthscape to froth under the surface. However, Kenton Slash Demon opts for a more crisp dancefloor beat—and tosses in a bit of tasty percussion around the edges, too—rather than maintain the muffled pulse of the original, and it serves the track well. In fact, once things really get cooking past the three-minute mark, you might find yourself torn over which version of "Little Houseboat" ranks highest in your book.
