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.
Frantz Thomasen aka Djuma Soundsystem has a small but acclaimed catalogue that stretches back to the early 00s. For his latest release, he teams up with fellow Danish artist Westerby for a deep, tripped out release. The title track follows a woozy groove that underpins a soulful Afro chant. It's ominous but ethereal, menacing but has an undisputedly emotive feeling to it. Jonathan Kaspar, who is making a name with releases on Pets, is tasked with reworking "Disambigua". He transforms it into a rolling tribal affair that resounds to loose but swollen bass tones and organic percussion. Meanwhile, Get Physical artist Aaron delivers a remix that veers back towards the tripped out original with a shimmering, melodic affair.
