Opel Mantra will be released in three parts, starting in February.
To date Steven van Hulle's output has been limited to a few low-key 12-inches, some of which have been produced in collaboration with fellow Amsterdam dwellers like Tom Trago, San Proper and Young Marco. That will change with the release of Opel Mantra, which will be released as three separate 12-inches in February and March (there will also be a CD release that pulls together all of the vinyl tracks).
According to Rush Hour, the first 12-inch comprises four house tracks infused with African and South American influences. It also contains a remix of "Su What?" by Kindred Spirits regular Jameszoo. The second and third parts both feature collaborations, with Jungle By Night guesting on "Baila Con Paula" and Tom Trago lending a hand on "Dikkiedik." You can listen to snippets of Part 1 over at the Rush Hour distribution page.
