following excellent releases from skatebard, les crocodiles and lunar concept amongst many others, pleasure unit turn to cut the rug crew member mike misiu for their latest instalment of cool-headed modern disco. do what you need sports a metro area demeanour, with a classic vocal hook sprinkled in at opportune moments for maximum impact. the dub mix is no less satisfying, even with the famous sample rubbed out, but in fact the real pleasant surprise of this release is b2 jam love talk. with its funky midtempo 90s breakbeat and heavy-hitting piano, it s an addictive party starter that harks back to the acid jazz days while still fitting right into the here and now.

hailing from lithuanian capital vilnius, miskotom appears on pleasure unit for a debut appearance that should appeal to all lovers of delicate, pop flecked house with a smooth 80s veneer. the production is perfect for the mood of the music, with the dusty groove of the title track embellished with eastern flute motifs and larry heard chords of the sweetest melancholy. - downtown - meanwhile revels in slap bass finery, and -tempelhof kite- gets a rubbery moog tone in the low end that offsets the woozy pads beautifully. kito jempere comes on board for a remix that dubs -tempelhof kite- down into a warm and sexy house cut of the highest order.
