Kolombo - Waiting for EP

Kompakt have always been partial to Belgium as they has been tremendously loving to us…leading the charge of support have been our friends Mugwump – the dynamite duo that comprises of Geoffroy and the star of our show today – Kolombo. The imprint had a great strain of releases with them over recent times and many will remember Kolombo from a number of big tunes for Turbo, Vice Versa and Boxer Recordings. One week ago Kolombo released his new EP “Waiting for EP”, that features a massive remix from Kompakt founder, Michael Mayer. The article will be about this new release, but if you would like to know more about the man himself, don’t hesitate to read the interview we had with him some months ago.


Kolombo has a long solo history of releases for the likes of Turbo, Boxer, Vice Versa. He is also half of the renown Belgian act Mugwum, who have releases on R&S, Throne of Blood and Kompakt.

Kolombo pays tribute to the spirit of slo-mo Belgian New Beat with “Waiting For”, an EP released on May 23rd. A 105 BPM driven concoction of classic house, Balearic disco lead by the voice of ‘80s pop maestro Howard Jones of his memorable hit “Everlasting Love” means yes, we have a winner! “Rescue Me” leads away from the sensationalist pop of “Waiting For” but shines in a disco-fied soaking of raucousness.

“Waiting for” has already made its rounds in the DJ crates as the single was delayed due to awaiting clearance from Howard Jones as the classic “Everlasting Love” is an integral part of this single!

Michael Mayer steps up and proves he still is on a winning streak of remixes, following changing up music for the likes of Shit Robot and WhoMadeWho and now with a take on Kolombo’s “Waiting For”. He embraces the grandeousness of the original, setting off with a stripped down classic Chicago house rhythm, slowly building it with bass until you can’t see past the lights of the club ceiling then traveling to a paradigm of dance music that is absolutely sincere yet completely untouchable.

At the end, it is a huge release for fans of Aeroplane, Lindstrom, Prins Thomas.
