As the saying goes, it’s not where you’re from but where you’re at, as Continental’s painstakingly been demonstrating these last two years putting out singles from like-minded musicians across the globe (London, Paris, Sydney, Osaka, Toronto, Ghent, Zurich etc). This time, for its 14th release, Jerry Bouthier’s imprint is jetting off to Jakarta, Indonesia, to hook up with local electrodisco heroes: Mjolnir. Spell M-J-O-L-N-I-R, which means the hammer of Thor, heard as thunder by humans!
Inspired by European synth pop, Mjolnir, the brainchild of Nara Anindyaguna and Catra Adhiwardana, dub their sound ‘dark disco funk’. The pair’s been getting steady, growing love from the best blogs out there thanks to winning melodies, skilled musicianship and a fresh - not so quite easy to pigeon-hole - approach that’s seen them remix The Chemical Brothers,Chromeo and more.
The EP contains four brand new reinterpretations taking the gorgeous ‘Just A Boy’ to new heights. JBAG aka Continental bosses Jerry Bouthier and Andrea Gorgerino could not resist giving it a glam make-over that’s both nostalgic and uplifting at the same time. Fresh from their debut “Bombay Night Story”, Continental’s last release, Switzerland’s Mannequinedeliver an ambitious re-rub that climaxes with housey pianos. Next, Vancouver-based rising producer Pat Lok gets rough and funky without losing the soulful gist of the original composition. Finally Helsinki’s Castletics combines robodisco groove and timeless euro flavours.

For its 13th release Jerry Bouthier’s label Continental records is off to Zurich for an invigorating slice of tropical hip-pop, the perfect follow-up to JBAG’s summery anthem ‘Mogadisco’.
Introducing Mannequine, the duo comprising of gifted songwriter Claudio Salvia and versatile dj Ruben Cassiano also behind their Swiss hometown’s best club night. After kicking off their collaboration with bootlegs and edits, the pair soon moved onto producing tentalizing tunes, high on tasteful melodies and rich arrangements, naturally fusing funk, house, nu-disco, indie, r’n’b, beats… in one inspired spell that’s got a definite 2013 stamp to it.
Soon several remixes followed, including their impeccable dramadisco reinterpretation of Kill The Hero ftMaggie K de Monde ‘Surrender’ (the 3rd Continental release where they were running against fierce competition with remixes from the likes of Shazam, Play Paul/Tulip, Reflex, Lancelot…) and soon enough Mannequine got working on their debut release, a voluptuous invitation not short of vibey keys, bouncy beats and exotic fragrance.
Enter local rappers Jas Crew, three MCs who between them combine five nations united under one name. These Swiss, with only one thing on their mind: music, as a whole in all its various forms and facets, have let their magic operate over Mannequine’s track and provided a fresh and infectious song. ‘Bombay Night Story’ was born, with a chorus catchier than chickenpox, this tale about a night out with loved ones offers a good piece of advice: it’s alright giving it all but make sure not to go overboard.
Take your pick between the original mixes: the glorious full-vocal, the none the less attractive and elegantly epic instrumental and Jerry Bouthier’s own dub edit which sits comfortably between the two (ie: the instrumental + some vocals).
Lastly Shindu – Continental’s Belgian protégés - provide an astute, more introspective take that relies heavily on a deeper than deep bassline.
