Jozef K doesn't perhaps get the props he deserves, despite a lengthy career and an extensive discography that includes killer cuts on such labels as Chiwax, Let's Play House and Skint. He's in prime form on this two-tracker, which not only marks his first release of 2021, but also his debut on Tensnake's True Romance label. Title track 'Ichika' is simply brilliant, with the frequent Winter Son collaborator wrapping an energetic, sub-heavy groove in effortlessly dreamy chords and the kind of wonderfully emotive, undulating synthesizer lead lines that sound particularly potent when the sun is rising above, or sinking below, the horizon. In contrast, 'Play' is a touch quicker and more intergalactic in tone, with delay-laden drum fills and spacey chords catching the ear.
