Casio Social Club - "Nordic Nights" - (5:14) 122 BPM
Djuma Soundsystem & Kolombo - "Cherimoya" - (6:15) 110 BPM
Review: Previously, Mullet faves Casio Social Club have largely delivered sprightly, tongue-in-cheek revisions of '80s electrofunk and synth disco. Here, they pop up on Eskimo with arguably their strongest release to date - a bass-heavy blend of Italo, deep house and tactile Balearic pop that simply twinkles with dancefloor intent. It also features some wonderful piano stabs, too, making it more E'd-up than your average Shoom punter circa 1989. Djuma Soundsystem & Kolombo's "Cherimoya", meanwhile, slows the pace for a similarly touchy-feely blend of sparse nu-disco and eyes-wide-shut electronic soul. Arguably Eskimo's best for some time, and definitely worth investigating.
