Banderas returns with a new EP, "2nd Take". It's a lively and skillful musical fusion from the Swiss producer, highlighting funk, afro and electro influences. The two original tracks, Faro and Handbrake, capture the dance floor with their steady tempo and combine straight beats with colourful, flowing melodies. While Faro is notable for its rousing exoticism, Handbrake takes us to a world of Hollywood-style car chases.
The next four tracks, remixes of Faro and Handbrake, are the result of collaborations with well-known producers: Timewarp inc, Quincy Jointz, Trotter, and new talent Fata & Morgana. The magic he creates is mouth-watering. Timewarp inc combines gentle soul harmonies with a powerful electro rhythm; the result is more than convincing. Trotter offers a breaky reading of Handbrake, reinforced with a deliciously meaty bass line. Quincy Jointz gives us a well-constructed, unforgiving, groovy steamroller of a version. As for Fata & Morgana, who was also the sound engineer on this EP, his cosmic interpretation provides "2nd Take" with an inspired breath of fresh air.
Banderas' passion for music dates back to the '90s, when the Swiss with Lebanese roots, who was born in 1982, began to play the guitar (rock and reggae) in different bands. In 2007, the young musician started to spin funk, soul and afro. His first steps as a producer resulted directly in his funk album "It's Time", which was released in November 2010 and got airplay on major radio stations in Germany, France and Switzerland. "2nd Take" is his new EP, released by Timewarp Music early in 2015.
