With the second release on Local Talks reissue sub label, 1nce Again we bring back one of our personal underground favourites from the golden age of house music (the early 90s). Back in 1994 Mateo & Matos released an EP on Black Label Records entitled Raw Elements, which included an amazing cut called “Maw Basics”. Its one of those raw 90s house jams that got the house “bump” but without the “pump”, its rough and funky but still deep if you know what we mean? No cheese in sight!

Together with the original track (now fully re-mastered) we also asked Gerd (4lux, NY Stomp) to make a remix that would stay true to the original but still bring it to the next level. The result is absolutely amazing and we’re pretty confident that this baby will deliver knock out punches every time it blasts through a proper sound system in a proper club. House satisfaction is guaranteed!
