Review: Not even the infamous Carlos from alt blog Hipster Runoff could conjure up a combination that was pitched more perfectly towards the alternative music press than this EP. Dan Snaith donning his Daphni garms to proffer not one but two remixes of the title track from cult Editions Mego act Emeralds 2010 album Does It Look Like I'm Here? and releasing them on his own Jiaolong imprint. Put all this aside and focus on the music and you won't be disappointed though, with the first remix conjuring up Gavin Russom and Delia Gonzales in their getting remixed by Carl Craig pomp. The dense synth noise of Maguire and co is transformed into an incendiary, trance-inducing dancefloor production and those who like to do things slightly different might enjoy how it sounds flipped to plus 8 at 33rpm. Check the B Side to for a version that discards with the beats to whip up the synths into a potent frenzy deranged psychedelia.

Review: In his funk-informed, edit-rich guise for Daphni/Caribou's Jiaolong imprint, Chaz 'Toro Y Moi' Bundick drops another sublime two-tracker of impeccably informed groove for sharp dancers and fearless romancers. "Grind" wastes no time in getting down with a sublime roll of drums, sleek bass and perfect touches of boogie synth, leaving space for some spaced out vocoder vocal over the top. "Prelims" heads off into more experimental territory with a low riding beat and droning, detuned melodies aimed squarely at creating a future-soul hybrid for the open-minded heads to tap into. There are serious legs to Bundick's project and this record serves to build on those pins with plenty of grace and oodles of style.
