following an impressive, low-key cassette release on kitty play in 2016, amsterdam-based artist aan zee makes the leap to vinyl with this appearance on pleasure wave, a label which has already made some waves with releases from g-marie, jonny 5 and miskotom. the aan zee sound is a lot to digest, spanning all kinds of cosmic funk, sky-scraping electronics and outernational influences, often all fired off at the same time. just sink your teeth into -persona/funny berber- for a taste and you ll understand. -vacation- is equally adventurous, with all kinds of melodic layering and instrument flexing in pursuit of an exotic new brew that doesn t shirk on the groove.
following up from last years ep on pleasure unit the folks from miskotom deliver a lovely 5 tracker for our other imprint pleasure wave following on from g marie and jonny .,the guys(guy and girl) carry on in much the same vein but drop gears ever so slightly for some more sun drenched tropical sounds. the opener hyena s laugh could be wally and larry jamming with the locals on kong island. senoi takes you on the back of a pick up truck and transports you from the coastal town and out onto the dusty tracks and into the night for a ride through the jungle and onto the other side. 10th day is all about cocktails by the infinity pool in the secret resort and soaking up that late afternoon sun. kuai can che is all twilight era maze tougher drums and chimes with those floaty synths. seeing us out is final cut kopiek lying back on the boat as you leave the island and it all becomes a tiny dot on the horizon...float on.. file under tropical, balearic, beach sounds.
release number two on pleasure wave comes from jonny 5,known for his releases on the bahnsteig label, here the edit meister delivers four tracks of cosmic goodness, adding synths and drums to the cut n paste..
