Quantic presents Flowering Inferno - "Cumbia Sobre El Mar" (feat Nidia Gongora - El Buho remix) (5:11)
Nickodemus, The Spy From Cairo & Gitkin - "Inmortales (Body Move)" (feat Femina - El Buho remix) (5:22)
Review: Following El Buho's "Tributaries" remix album, Wonderwheel offer up this choice 7" featuring two distinct cuts not found on the main record. First up is El Buho's take on grand master Quantic, working with the storied producer's considerable knowledge of Latin music to create a remix of "Cumbia Sobre El Mar" already well loved on globally minded dancefloors. On the flip comes the never before released El Buho version of Nickodemus and Femina's "Inmortales" - a fierce, drum-tastic version to get bodies shaking down.

In My House (feat Lisa Shaw, Carol C & BAM - Art Of Tones Deep dub mix) (6:14)
Review: Nickodemus has always enjoyed skipping between musical styles, with previous releases touching on everything from hip-hop and Latin beats to reggae, ska, jazz and broken beat. This time round, he's decided to turn his hand to good, old-fashioned house music. "In My House", featuring the distinctive vocals of former Naked Music chanteuse Lisa Shaw, is a loose but driving number, where fuzzy, low-slung guitars and clipped electric bass notes are smothered in tech-house electronics and warehouse-friendly stabs. Art of Tones provides the flipside remixes, delivering a heavily electronic deep house Remix before serving up a deeper and dreamier Dub version that makes great use of Shaw's freestyle vocalizing. The EP's bonus cut, loose jazz-house shuffler "Funk That", may be the best of the lot.
