Tokyo label Blindetonation drops a killer split release that encapsulates all that's great about modern disco. It opens with Gabriel Ferreira's "Slow Sugar", which, as its title suggests, is laid back but expansive, chugging along at 90 bpm or thereabouts. The tempo increases on Club Bizarre's "Supernova", with heavy claps and warbling acid creating a sense of spaciousness and a similar approach is audible on the lazy, dub-tinged groove of Bird Of Paradise's "92 Responder". The release takes an electronic turn on Steve Ekman's "Obscuria", a pulsing bass coming together with spiky beats, but soon enough, it veers back to its dubbed out environment courtesy of the languid groove of "The Back Door" by
Ivan Smoka, Christian C and Vinz Vincenzo.
