Fantastic Man – Solar Surfing [KITJEN009]

Fantastic Man returns to Kitjen with a powerful EP of mind-bending, acid workouts. ‘Solar
Surfing’ is a concise example of the Australian artist’s panache for psychedelically inspired house music with two dance-floor heavy cuts preceding a contemplative, baseline driven slow jam. The hypnotic and fast paced title track locks in and moves ever forward, whilst ‘Native Power’ features the classic sound of Fantastic Man’s 303, coupled cleverly with the sound of an extraterrestrial bird-song. A drop in tempo rounds off the release with ‘Avocado Conception’, an expertly delivered exploration in slow, chugging nostalgia.’

Fantastic Man – Galactic Ecstasy [KITJEN005]

Kitjen’s fifth installment comes in the form of three floor-friendly cuts by Melbourlin’s Fantastic Man. This Swiss Army Knife of a 12? gracefully knocks on the doors of Italo and Acid House and is filled with trippy drums that create a perfect pool for you to drown in.

Tambien – Ondule [KITJEN002]

The second Kitjen 12″ released come from Tambien. The trio’s particular take on house – left-of-centre, but deliciously warm and inviting – comes to the fore on “Ondule”. The track is hard to pin down, with dreamy Balearic electronics and rich organ chords rising and falling over a twisting, skittish drum machine rhythm. Kornel Kovacs delivers the flipside remix, utilizing the Munich outfit’s wonderful chords and melodies whilst attaching his own throbbing, Italo-influenced deep house groove.
