Review: It's been a short while since we last heard from Kotei, but he is back in full force with this spicy new single 'ICHI'. As always with Kotei's production, this one is as crispy as they come, taking a strong theme of eastern-style melodies and plucked strings. This of course opens the door to some fantastic remix additions, with Glume & Phossa kicking us off with a regal sounding refit, jam-packed with lethal bass punches and unique percussive expression. Next, MOREOFUS delivers a typically grimey rethink, stuffed with eerie synthesizer drones and choppy drum slaps, before Dakan takes us to the swamp with his squelchy overhaul. Finally, JFO delivers a stripped back finale, focussing on intense drum processing to round off the project with a classy touch!
Review: The team at Romulus have uncovered somewhat of a gem with this spicey new divine selection from Kanomotis, who kicks off proceedings with some intricate melodic bliss on the title track 'Nostalgia'. Through booming subs and sweeping synthetic pads above, this a seriously potent kickstart, chased up by 'Gisaza' mysterious revamp, focussing heavily on woodwind and tripletted drum structures. From here the evil-side of Kanomotis is driven to the surface with 'Rapid' finding a sizzling biting point between minimalist subs and system-busting basslines, followed by 'Sonder', which uses cartoon like blips and bloops to provide a melodic structure that sees out the EP in style.
