Qoso's debut album follows a series of EPs for In Paradisum, but it sees him venture farther in an experimental direction. "Superwoman" is a jittery, noisy affair and "Shame on You" features a blaring foghorn and little else. "Miss California" is another curiosity, with Qoso recording a random woman's monologue before plunging into swampy, murky noise. That's not to suggest that Printemps-Ete is bereft of dance floor techno. "Peaches N Cream" and "Saindoux" are powerful broken beat workouts, and "Strass & Paillettes" is a high-tempo, big-room loop affair. Best of all though is "Emotional", which sees Qoso jump in and out of time using the kind of rolling break beat that would make Shed envious.
