LaTique – Orange Juice

Written by on August 31, 2020

Stepping out with his debut album and joining fellow artists like his friends Dwson and Pierre Johnson, LaTique has a fresh take on tech and deep house.

Born Mfihlakalo Siphesihle Mbanjwa, LaTique started out with Fruity Loops – but in 2020 he’s graduated to EPs on labels like Atjazz and Stay True Sounds.

His first LP kicks off with the tranquil and captivating ‘All Alone’, where plaintive vocals from Chief Joint & Salvador echo above warm chords and a killer bassline. Following track ‘Won’t Stop’ doesn’t – it just gets more expansive, moving into the trance-like Afro-tech the likes of Culoe de Song are exploring. Plus there’s that deft chord change…

‘Moments’ actually introduces African-style chants and maintains the momentum, all synth sparks and impeccably-placed hi-hats over a rolling undertow. Then the title track charts a more minimal path, a spare bassline beckoning the listener into its dark tunnel. ‘Your Time’ is busier, but still built for peak-time with its relentless flow and scathing synths.

On ‘Organ Of 93′, LaTique is joined by Pierre Johnson, and while the title suggests a throwback it’s anything but, retooling classic house tropes in a new big room way, the pair’s skillsets conjoining wonderfully on a complex and colourful track. On ‘Not Guilty’, the tech is turned way up, with some shimmering notes and vocal lines flitting around the forward-focussed groove.

Singer P.M dominates ‘Easy Road’, which is reminiscent of the work of the late Kenny Hawkes with SA singer Louise Carver. Then ‘Morning Cry’ takes us on a trip to the club in the very early morning, the sun about to rise. Finally, ‘Give You Up’ ends big, a mass of synths reaching up above a tide of propulsive reverberations.

As debuts go they don’t get more impressive than this – a scintillating starter that will be loved by the likes of Dixon, Âme, Franck Roger, Rocco and more.

    Hey! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share. Thank you!

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Kudos

    After reading your blog post I browsed your website a bit and noticed you are not ranking nearly as well in the search engine as you could be. I possess a handful of blogs myself and I think you should take a look at speed rank SEO. You will find it a very good tool that can help you rank on the top of search engine, just search speed rank SEO on google. Keep up the quality posts Clovis Haze Morly

    Nice review! I had no interest in seeing this film, because I my assumption was that it was going to be exactly as you described it. Do you think that this was just a story that someone wanted to tell that was eventually tied into the Joker character, or do you think that this represents a shift in how the Joker is perceived by those who have no experience with the character in printed media?

    I would like to show some appreciation to you for bailing me out of this type of circumstance. Right after surfing around throughout the the web and seeing recommendations which are not productive, I thought my life was gone. Living without the presence of solutions to the issues you’ve solved by way of the short article is a crucial case, and ones which could have badly affected my entire career if I had not come across your website. Your good understanding and kindness in maneuvering the whole thing was helpful. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a stuff like this. I’m able to at this point relish my future. Thanks a lot very much for your specialized and sensible guide. I won’t be reluctant to propose your web site to anyone who will need support on this topic.

    I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours nowadays, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s lovely worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before. “Perfection of moral virtue does not wholly take away the passions, but regulates them.” by Saint Thomas Aquinas.
