French producer Koyote brings us the second installment in a trilogy of EPs slated for the Mixpak imprint. Bringing together a number of different styles, Koyote draws on grime, funky, house and old skool rave music. The Blowin My Mind EP kicks off with "Metro Bunny", in which a chirpy melody sits above smashing drum kicks and snares hypnotically, and takes us through "Blowin My Mind" with its funky influence, driving 4/4 beat and Redlight-esque patina. "Peanut Butter Complex" has a jacking house beat with droning SFX and quirky moments peeping in and out of focus and the "With Some Pretty Eyes" remix adds another dimension to this compelling EP.
Koyoto kicks off what will eventually be a trilogy of EPs on the Mixpak imprint with "Midsummer Tales" - a trimvirate of sunshine drenched summer riddims, utilising analogue synths and drum machines. First up is "Night Train"; opening with the sounds of a heated thunderstorm it progresses into a brooding but compelling number, which segues nicely into "Saint-Vincent-Lespinasse", up next, tuning into a glorious synth-driven, organ chiming euphoria sensibility with gently pumping beats and beautiful cooing flutes. Finishing with "Lost In Bamboo Park", it's all jungle noises, whirring beats and snapping rattles for the duration.
