Supported by acclaimed artists such as Jennifer Cardini, Curses, Pete Herbert, Gene Farris, Jerry Bouthier, Severino Panzetta, and Mano Le Tough, just to name a few, the next release of the Barcelona-based label Paradise Children features the respected and innovative Russian duo Radial Gaze. Having already released on vital labels – Eskimo, Calypso, Hold Your Ground, Esthétique, Nein, Hard Fist, and Belly Dance Services –, the partnership between Andrey & Stas delivers this time a six-track EP, consisting in two originals and enlisting a slew of talents for remix duties: Toulouse Low Trax, La Mverte, Tim Paris, and Hanzo & Yaman (SXDNS065).
Despite the immense quality of the remixes, we opted for premiering one of the originals: “Fugu Taste” properly showcases the signature sonority of the St Petersburg brothers. The theme, devoted to making you lose yourself to dance – despite the darkness of the times –, does not fail to bring you that everything-is-going-to-be-alright feeling that only music can provide. Even with its ominous atmosphere, the vibrant orient-influenced synth layer of the track supplies an upbeat and cheerful mood. Another mission accomplished by the comrades.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the label.
