Kimo's second outing on Paper Recordings is a predictably varied affair, with the Indonesian producer using the opportunity to flit between styles and tempos. So while glistening, heavily electronic opener "Center Room" is a perfectly judged fusion of superior nu-disco, chiming synth-pop melodies and gently undulating acid lines, "Closer", featuring the silky vocals of regular collaborator Kallula, is little less than an overwhelming blast of pure Balearic positivity. In between, you'll find the trippy, analogue-rich, low-slung chug of "Realm Creation", and the fluttering, Italo-disco influenced cheeriness of "Pore". Happily, all four tracks sound just as good on headphones, as they do blasting from club soundsystems.
