Review: German hipster imprint Kitjen is up to its sixth release following up greta ones by Suzanne Kraft, Hotel Lauer and Shit Robot. In the label themselves this is is 'the tropical cruise ship experience of the summer' brought to you by Amsterdam duo Beesmunt Soundsystem. Watch an umbrella appear in your glass as you play these four neon-lit retro house cuts! Start sending automated out of office replies by simply scanning the cover with your mobile device! Another great quote from the label 'This record's official dress code is 'cannabis farmer at court hearing".
Review: Given that Fantastic Man's last outing on Kitjen, 2016's "Galactic Ecstasy", was one of his more interesting and on-point releases to date, hopes are high for this belated return to the German label. First up in "Solar Surfing", a spacey affair built around stuttering machine drums, intergalactic electronics and a thickset bassline. Acid-fired workout "Native Power" follows, with psychedelic TB-303 lines and minimalist bleeps riding a flowing electro groove, before closing cut "Avocado Conception" sees the Australian combine Balearic-minded synthesizer flourishes and bubbly acid lines with a slower groove. Like the rest of the EP, it's ear pleasing but surprisingly off-kilter.
