Ripperton & She DJ Masaya - Long Distance

After the barely audible splash of his fine release as Lazy Fat People on Border Community, Ripperton takes his hazy smacked out sounds to Switzerland’s Num, and this vital and important 12 inch. “Long Distance” is 12 minutes of soaring epic house music. Airport noises fade into a perfect kick drum, buzzing hazy synths swarm higher and higher: is this really minimal? The heavy MBV-ish drones may be from the past but this song feels like an early morning in a way that is timeless and familiar to any dance music fan who has clubbed all night. Why is minimal taking over, huge in Ibiza, and on the cover of Mixmag? Because week in week out this scene continues to produce tracks like this; the greatest soundtracks to the greatest nights of peoples lives, worldwide.
