German producer Dana Ruh makes her debut for Buzzin' Fly following a decent outing on Ostgut Ton. With four distinct cuts to choose from, Kickboxing is quietly impressive. It's the title track that most impresses, building an intoxicating, late night brew of typically Germanic deep house grooves and freestyle vocal loops. The acid-tinged "This" is a pleasingly dark excursion, whilst "That" is an urgent old-skool bumper that profits from great use of analogue riffs and bass. "What I'm Telling You", meanwhile, reverts to the eyes-wide-shut blissfulness hinted at in the EP opener. Good stuff all told.
