Just when we thought the world was going to end as we knew it in 2012, mobilee stayed afloat with some soild releases confirmed by Rodriguez Jr. on CD 1. Ray Okpara left some memorable impressions on his album, ‘Good Times’, Pan-Pot dropped a double-headed bomb with ‘White Noise’, And.Id went bold with raw, unedited studio recordings when he released his ‘Live Cuts’ and Sebo K introduced a new string of parties with ‘Scenario’.
CD 2 will blow you away with ‘Hartwood’, Rodriguez Jr’s biggest hit to date. With a series of alternating and repetitive keyboard strokes and soulful lyrics bouncing on a thick velvet cushion of rich background base, this number is guaranteed to appeal to the industry’s most respected players while the ironically titled, ‘Henry & Lars’ takes form in a very cuddly story that took place at BPM Festival in Mexico as Anja’s little guy and a stuffed animal named ‘Lars’ found love and friendship in a little girl and her gay stuffed-animal she called ‘Henry’. And so the story went on…
To add the necessary, finishing touches to ‘O Amor’, Rodriguez Jr. and Tassilo pulled the office chair wheels from right under the their favorite booker, clapped some headphones over the top of his head, propped him in front of a recording mic and voilà!, mobilee has le nueva cantante de house music! It’s no secret that the man behind the mobilee booking front had a soulful side to him – it was just a matter of time before Diego was to reconnect to his Mexican roots and sing about the odyssey of love.
Taking the set to a deeper level, ‘Roads’, is a joint effort between Rodriguez Jr. and a certain Greek Pharaoh whom you might recognize from his tender trumpet calls. And.id is full heart out as the duo deliver a tragically upbeat number that rounds off a sentimental theme.
The track list goes on with a surprise collaboration from San Francisco buddy, Safeword, plus a new interpretation of Sebo K’s classic hit ‘Rancho Relaxo’.
