German veteran DJ Koze impressed earlier this year with the Amygdala album, his fourth in total. Here, Pampa presents the first of what we assume will be a series of remix EPs. Excitingly, there's a rare remix from Matthew Herbert, who weighs in with a superb version of vocal cut "Magical Boy". His version, built around typically swinging drums and unlikely percussion samples, is deliciously sweet, wrapping the sublime vocal in sampled jazz horns, bubbling electronic bass and atmospheric chords. Efdemin provides a really rather lovely, ultra-deep house version of album highlight "La Duquesa" (thinking touchy-feely Rhodes, atmospheric strings and evocative electronics), before Koze's own instrumental of "Magical Boy" completes an excellent package.
