Vincent Kwok - Afrique (Transport Recordings)

San Francisco’s Transport Recordings is proud to present the latest from Vincent Kwok, the ambitious and exotic house music single “Afrique.” Blending the west coast’s deep house sound with African-inspired rhythms and instrumentation, Vincent has created a hypnotic number that swells and builds with layers of melody and flowing chords. The original cut is pure Balearic house bliss, sure to please Vincent’s fans as well as win many new ones. There’s also Vincent Kwok’s Deep Trip which takes “Afrique” into more solid deep house territory with its grooving bass line, distant saxophone melody, and echoing pads over the steady four-on-the-floor. Transport’s own DJ MFR is also on hand for his reinterpretation of “Afrique,” lending a production that is appealingly heavy on the tribal percussion while still retaining Vincent’s melodic base. MFR has supplied a Beats version, as well, giving the DJ a chance to work with the remix’s intricate percussion. Undoubtedly it’s another surefire winner from Vincent Kwok and Transport Recordings.
