In which man like Møzaika returns to the Munich based Public Possession imprint. And, as ever with Marvin and Valentino’s collective curatorial nouse, the quality is sky high. Having scored quite the hit with his inaugural release on PP lesser producers might be content to have continued in a similar path, especially given the rapturous reception that ‘Aqua’ received. Not for Møzaika though – showing himself to be dude with more ideas than most he’s taken us in an unexpected but wholly welcome new direction.
Roping in Australian singer Sui Zhen we’re taken on a playful and gleeful synth-pop joyride on ‘Drive’ – and make no mistake this is a proper song. You’ll be singing it to yourself and everything. For the vocal-shy we get a rubberised disco dub with shades of the Art of Noise and Compass point. Themes that are expanded on in ‘Crepuscule’ with it’s synth-metallic percussion, reduced tempo and more balearic persuasion. Sinking further still into the metaphorical sun lounger the EP closes out with the blissed out tones of ‘Never See You Again’. All this leaves the listener hoping they will being seeing Møzaika, and what he comes up with next, sooner rather than later.
‘Passing Looks’ is out June 11th on Public Possession
