Clive Tanaka Y Su Orquestra "I Want You (So Bad) (Groundislava Remix)"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
So-Cal beat head and Wedidit Collective member Groundislava steps a little bit outside his usual fare of crafting stony, bit-crushed head-nodders and takes Clive Tanaka Y Su Orquestra's bedroom funk for a spin. Stripping back and subduing the original track, Groundislava presents "I Want You (So Bad)" (from Tanaka's excellent Jet Set Siempre No. 1 LP, artwork above) as a sort of melancholy, contemporary piece of electro hip-hop where post-whatever soundscapes and Afrika Bambaattaa-esque breaks are enhanced with just the lightest touch of g-funk. Apparently the two producers have engaged in a remix swap of sorts, as we're told Clive Tanaka Y Su Orquestra has a remix of Groundislava that is due to appear on a forthcoming 7". If the remix talents go both ways in this exchange (which we're pretty sure they do), then the Clive Tanaka remix should be something to look forward to, but we're perfectly happy to stick with Groundislava's contribution to the swap for the time being.
