About this item

Music From Memory / Redlight man Abel doesn't grace our release sheets that often, presumably kept busy by curating those killer labels and endlessly digging. It's a shame really because he basically has a flawless record in edit-land, selecting the coolest records you've never heard, ditching the dross and giving the good stuff the maximum space to sparkle. 

When this power-platter first surfaced in 2019 it flew (I'm talking bird, plane, superman speeds), so we never got even a sniff of a copy. Thankfully the Surfing In Kansas fraternity have seen fit to repress and I get to share my enjoyment of this record with all y'all. It's straight to the discotheque on the A-side with the drum box snap and electronic gurgle of "Another Cigarette", an absoltuely class edit of a Euro-imitates-Sheffield synthpop smasher. Half sung male vocals, white noise snares and that kind of Electrifying Mojo energy. Flip it for the freaky fun of "Klat Klat", another INCREDIBLE cut which emerges from a haze of billowing pads, treated vocals and skewed rhythm grids as a blast of vocoded boogie optimism. Finally "Raw" gives it ya with no trivia, but a whole load of digi-cowbell, DX7 chimes and nipple high bass work, mid tempo action for the Balearic fam.
