Javier Portilla & Wizard ft. Haptic – ‘Wicked’
Includes Hannes Bieger & Heîk remixes
The Selador World Tour continues apace, as we scour the globe for only the very best new music.
And it’s now our great pleasure to bring you another Seladorian debutant, the Costa Rica-born / Barcelona-residing producer, Javier Portilla partnered on production duties here by fellow Costa Rican Wizard, while the unmistakable vocals are courtesy of renowned Australian vocalist, Haptic.
And there’s more…oh yes…this package also includes a return to the label for one of our favourites, straight outta Berlin, the inimitable warrior of sound that is Hannes Bieger, aided and abetted by rising Mexican artist of considerable repute, formerly one half of Øostil, Heîk.
‘Wicked’ is instantly captivating, brimming with dance floor swagger and an intoxicating underlying menace, all elevated by an array of celestial riffs and Haptic’s sensuous spoken word vocal. It’s a spiritual thing.
Hannes Bieger is, of course, a byword for quality – he was Javier’s personal choice of remixer, one that Team Selador was only too happy to endorse and embrace. His re-rub is equally powerful giving the memorable vocal plenty of space to breathe (Shazam overload alert!), but goes deeper and darker for a truly majestic 6am vibe.
And finally, the man like Heîk steps up with his own distinctive interpretation, a modern masterclass in off-kilter soundscaping that culminates in a final act pay-off that will ignite dance floors far and wide.
No rest for the wicked indeed.
