Simple Symmetry – XXX002 [XXX002]

The Russian duo, Simple Symmetry, delivers the second EP on Holland’s XXX label, unveiling a trio of new cuts. They begin with the curious but entertaining Italo disco-deep house fusion of “Chemical Wedding Of Christian Rosenkreutz” before moving into deeper, more tactile territory with the Steve Hillage guitars, dreamy chords and chugging grooves of “Best Ice Cream In Guwahati”. The latter is remixed by Public Possession’s Marvin & Guy, who emphasize the track’s sleazier elements. Arguably best of all, though, is “Whip Me In The Saloon”, which sounds like a cracking tribute to mid-80s Chicago house with added piano solos.

Zombies In Miami – Snake Language [LOTR007]

The 7th release on Love On The Rocks, comes from the Mexican duo Zombies in Miami with a three track EP titled ‘Snake Language’. The title track is a raw an haunting drum heavy number. On the flip comes ‘Calo’ with its twisting riffs that wind and turn alongside percussive interludes. ‘Yamo’ changes the pace but is no less impressive with climactic flutes and a driving bass line. ‘El Fuego’ completes the release as a digital exclusive. With this EP, the Zombies in Miami are literally on fire!
