Jean Nipon "Girl Complex (Voltron Refix)"

The Belgian bass entrepreneurs at the Silverback label are set to drop another release, this time from French producer Jean Nipon. The party-starting Frenchman has displayed a knack for genre hopping over the years, turning out everything from baile funk bootlegs to electro-tinged bangers. The five-track Girl Complex EP (artwork above), which will be released on February 20, finds him experimenting with tropical-flavored house and chopped-up vocal bits. It also includes remixes from Jam City, JTRP, and Silverback label bosses Voltron. The latter has been offered up as a free download, and finds Voltron stripping down the original's burly rhythm and employing loping percussion that loosely recalls the unique drum patterns of tribal guarachero. Paired with some nimble synth melodies and an ominously seductive vocal sample, the track comes together quite nicely. A preview of the rest of the EP and the complete tracklist can be found after the jump.
