Summer kicks off with ‘How Come U Know’, a 4-track EP by accomplished producer and DJ Captain Mustache from Paris. For this EP, he teams up with rave legend Adamski and electro goth star Linda Lamb. Title track ‘How Come U Know’ is an electro rave basher featuring Adamski’s vocals and cheeky lyrics about the all-seeing eye and loss of privacy. On ‘Bliss’, the deep and esoteric voice of Linda Lamb takes us to another world without possession – electro wave in optima forma. The remaining two tracks on ‘How Come U Know’ showcase Captain Mustache’s crispy electro pop sound, made to dance all summer long.
Captain Mustache is a DJ and producer with some fifteen years as a label manager. He arrives on Bordello A Parigi with a unique blend of electro spiked disco. The Parisian lands with a four tracker guaranteed to leave bodies and speakers aching with joy. Teaming up with Paul Play on vocals, “Special Friend” is a purely nocturnal affair. Smokey words sail above crisp percussion as laser beam synthlines lance a haze of early morning light. “Rhythm 55” is built on bold beats, the Captain slowly unfurling a sparkling melody that glimmers and shines next to burbling acid-tinged bass. A generous introduction gives way to toms and snipping snares for “Jean-Michel”, a beautiful tribute to synthesizer master Jean-Michel Jarre. Bright and clean, the track is steeped in a future-gazing optimism that palpably echoes through its vocoder. “Space Jowblob” brings our odyssey with Captain Mustache to a close, astral chords and beaming bars washed in starlight.
