After impressing with a series of decent contributions to re-edit EPs from Chopshop and Man made music, Japan's Beaten Space Probe (AKA producer Shota Tanaka) strikes out on his own. The mood throughout Beaten Space Probe 01 is celebratory, as Tanaka subtly extends, tweaks and improves a string of groove-heavy disco jams. The four-track menu includes a particularly tasty extension of Loletta Holloway's "Love Sensation" and the deliciously optimistic "Nine Lives", a sugary sweet but surprisingly meaty edit that builds to a blistering climax. Best of all, though, is opener "Boogie Prancin", which is as addictive as it is cheery. That's very, by the way.
