Whilst record label offshoots of mp3 blogs are de rigueur these days, first wave French blog Fluokids were ahead of the curve when they launched Fool House back in 2008. Their fifth release sees them plunder Scandinavia for the idiosyncratic sounds of Taragana Pyjarama, a young Danish producer who expertly blends house rhythms with organic hypnotic melodies. Whilst the name - inspired by a Roxy Music track - might be a mouthful the music is delightful. Those of you whose bookmarks are filled with mp3 blogs will recognise "Girls" which first surfaced on the more discerning hypem huggers last summer and newly remastered here sounds just as beautiful. Sitting somewhere between the techno brilliance of DJ Koze and the Border Community stable and the woozy narcosis of acts like Blondes, "Girls" retains a certain timeless quality, with warmth that always grabs you fully. Ricardo Tobar of the aforementioned Border Community imprint remixes the track and stamps it with a glistening dancefloor sensibility whilst retaining the qualities that make the original so appealing. Elsewhere the young producer - previously known for Hivern Disc output as Eim Ick -includes two further original tracks, of which "Ocean" is given a stunning headphone centric refix by Merok duo Teengirl Fantasy. Tres Bien!
