Wolf Music's latest offering sees label regular Mr Fries join forces with Mike Kandinsky, an up and coming producer based in the Northern Rhine city of Aachen. The result is a warm, loose and atmospheric EP that effortlessly flits between jazzy and hazy instrumental interludes (see "Intro", "Fallingasleep" and the blunted hip-hop beats of "Junkfoodmusic (Part 2)") and loose, languid and groovy club jams rooted in jazz-fired deep house. In the latter category you'll find the ultra-warm grooves, bluesy trumpet solos and eyes-closed Rhodes solos of "Strolling Around", the Marvin Gaye sampling late night smokiness of "Downhere" (a kind of contemporary update of the jazz-house sound explored on St Germain's "Boulevard" LP) and the driving, dub-disco informed deep house throb of "Stranger". In a word: superb.
