Orange Peel

Spliff house full of disco samples and dubby effects by YMC, deep house duo that had a relative impact on the chill-house crowd with their later LP 'Essentials' in Yoshitoshi. This is their first album, out through Source (*), a hypno-house + downtempo favorite of mine I unearthed only recently and listen to again these days with great pleasure. I have no knowledge at all of their nationality or anything else for that matter, so all clues are welcome.

Strangely, the repetitive parts remind me the more recent Workshop and Mikrodisko releases (without the occasional rough edges though). Or maybe I'm too bombed...

These guys are swedish.
They were mostly famous for their very successful sample-CD series, from which they made a lot of money on during the nineties.

Thanx for the info. I should have guessed they were Swedish, this tight, ultra-compressed sound was a clue after all.
