Second release from promising Antipodean nu-disco duo, Electric Zeus, after a strong debut release for Chris Coco’s Melodica imprint. To accompany, a techy remix production from EzTek will no doubt crossover to the various dancefloors, but the standout here is a mix from JMRS Embracer who (along with a brilliantly retro-sounding name) rouses the soul of '80s electro boogie with some snappy 808 drum sequences. Fun and fully functional — rollerskates at the ready.
"Honestly, the beats these two make together are some of the best I've ever heard."
Thank the lord for things like this. Modern, edgy house music which isn't just slavish, old school revivalist nonsense. Though we do like that too, sometimes. Just not all the time. Anyway. Wunderkind Gerry Read drops this sparse three-tracker for Will Saul's Aus Music, a wobbling, warping machine groove, all tin-pot percussion and a man saying "numbers". Simple, but totally engrossing. 'Cosmoid' has a bit more shake to it, a more relentless, warehouse smasher, juxtaposed with gentle melodic arps. Very clever. The Nathan Fake mix of the title track is ace too, obviously.
"The man with the nicest moustache in the business delivers this ultra-emotional techno record. It’s perfect."
