After a slow start to the season Rothmans are back with their second release of 2016 and who else could this record be dedicated to than 'The Godfather of Total Football' Johan Cruyff, RIP. Another great name gone from football but never to be forgotten , a fitting tribute to the Flying Dutchman. The record itself comes from 'Dawn Again' . Not much is known about this producer other than apparently he is Australian but lives in New York and throws parties in Brooklyn. The EP itself is quite honestly one of the best things we have heard all year. No remixes this time (which is the usual format on Rothmans) just 4 pulsating underground juggernaughts , all original Dawn Again material. The First track 'Colored Pens' hit us straight away with a style that seems to have been lifted staight out of a LOTI record, this is something we have no complaints with!. This is followed on the A-side by 'The Italian' which is a slowed down chugger that does serious damage in the last few minutes. The B-side gives us a lushous smooth dance track called Plain of Jars, and the record is finished off with a real Kruyff Turn in 'Lavender' , a total curve ball filled with bass and breaks that remids us something of the remix Eddie c pulled off on Roth10. All in all something completely different from the last Rothmans records, but we are used to this by now as their season starts to unfold and really get going!!
