Review: A French house pioneer who predated the revival of Italo disco with some key releases on Gigolo back in 2005, Kiko builds on his recent Flash In The Pan EP with these two new sample heavy disco-house nuggets, out on Blend It. "Give It Up" is a perfect mix of tightly-looped samples of Tata Vega's cover of Ned Doheny's "Get It Up For Love" combined with pitch-perfect bass and beats. On the flip, "The Shuffle" is a more intense, straightline techno workout that features a slowly rising spoken-word monologue that lends it an epic feel, aided of course by a relentless beat and some gloriously frazzled samples. Essential fare for fans of the French sound.

Review: An underrated star of French house who pre-dated the revival of Italo disco with releases on Gigolo in 2005, Kiko is back with this excellent EP on Blend It. He nails that Italo sound once again on "80s Will Never Die" without being cheesy for a second, while the rest of the EP is much more indebted to '90s house gods such as DJ Sneak and of course Daft Punk. "Got Me Burning Up" sounds like a classic Roule release, as does the tightly looped "Last Day Of Disco", while the AVH-sounding "Inside Track" simply kills it. A fantastic set of songs, and one which French touch fans should immediately get involved with.
