The Netherlands' Dopeness Galore can always be relied upon to deliver singles that blur the boundaries between evocative electrofunk, deep house, disco, and saucer-eyed Balearic electronica. That's exactly what's delivered on this solo debut from Midnight Runners man Munir Septiandry. Bristling with rich and colourful synthesizers, undulating basslines, and tactile drum machine beats, Ritmo Echo is a superb collection of sticky, summery grooves. Highlights are frequent and numerous; check the Andras & Oscar-meets-Moon B loveliness of "Good Morning Lunar", the bold, analogue synth-disco of "Under The Sea" and the sensual, piano-laden, sun-down feel of standout "Kaze No Dansu". If that's not enough to get the juices flowing, the title track is a fluttering, slo-mo synthesizer gem.
