Review: Heels & Souls Recordings proudly hit release number nine, revisiting mid-90s Toronto to reissue two blissfully Balearic house gems from 100th Monkey. The story of 100th Monkey is intertwined with The Boomtang Boys, a production trio and record label that delivered many iconic Canadian productions. In the early 90s, brothers Tony and Paul Grace, after releasing a 12" as Fun Wow, teamed up with classically trained pianist Rob DeBoer, creating the perfect synergy of inspiration and musical knowledge. This collaboration birthed The Boomtang Boys and their unique sound.Toronto's vibrant scene at the time, filled with producers, raves, and top-tier labels like Stickmen, Hi-Bias, and DNH, influenced their style. Paul, a record store buyer and DJ, drew inspiration from the UK, leading to a variety of sounds produced under different monikers. Their sole release as 100th Monkey, a cherished 12" from 1994, stands out as a Canadian gem. 'Raindance' is a hit of summertime heat, a mid-tempo Balearic deep house track with shuffling hats, a spine-tingling bassline, African vocal samples, dreamy strings, and goose-bumping chords. 'Nyika Nyika' picks up the pace, shimmering with arps and looped African vocal samples, making it perfect for sunsets and dancefloors alike. On the B-side, Manuel Darquart's remix of 'Raindance' injects new energy, adding steamy synth lines and a salacious sax. Finally, the unreleased 'River Ride' from 1996, with its floating pads, trickling arps, laidback breakbeat, and grooving bassline, sees the light of day, offering perfect warm-up or warm-down material. A top reissue.

100th Monkey & Tristan - "Gobi Desert" (Parallax Deep edit) (7:51)
Four Carry Nuts - "Bunker" (Parallax Deep edit) (9:08)
Review: There is a great backstory to this new one on Blue Hour: when Stockholm producer, DJ and promoter Maya Lourenco aka Parallax Deep was digging for music in the local Snickers Record store, she found two classic goa and psy trance tracks that particularly interested her. As such she snapped them up, took them home and began to work on her own distinctive edits of them, rearranging sections, cutting up bits and adding extra details while never getting too far away from the essence of the originals. Her edits of those two originals - 'Gobi Desert' by 100th Monkey & Tristan from 1995 - and 2000's 'Bunker' by Four Carry Nuts - are pressed up here and both sound brilliant.
