About this item

A production ‘tour de force’ over the last decade, Joe Goddard has had his fingers in many pies (Hot Chip, The 2 Bears, Greco-Roman Soundsystem to name but a few) but it’s on this Cin Cin debut that he bares his solo chops and delivers something for the floor. The darker roots of acid house are channelled on “Jack Come Back”, with a rubbery bassline and churning keys loaded over the vintage drum machine rhythms as the deviant vocal calls out the track title. “Moebius Trip” takes a headier journey through wave upon wave of melodic modular synthesis and crumpled beats, with a nod to Detroit’s techno-soul heritage, whilst packing a punch with the energy levels.

Kiwi has been making huge leaps and bounds with his music over the last few years, racking up memorable releases and remixes on labels like Futureboogie, 17 Steps and Correspondant. He kicks off the new-year with a brace of futuristic disco stompers. “LakE” delivers with punchy drums and frenzied arpeggiation, a chattering vocal dispatches a warm human feel to the cold (but ever so funky) electronics. On “KatE”, double bass slaps against a rigorous rhythm section and haunting pads, as delaying distant voices ping-pong psychedelically across the deck.
