Jakarta based Jonathan Kusuma delivers a new EP on Cocktail d Amore Music. After his European debut on Cosmo Vitellis I m A Cliche, followed by a successful EP on Berlins imprint Love On The Rocks, the Indonesian artist keeps carrying the vessel of the Far East sound.
The title track Black Magic is a fat disco-tribal inspired groove that builds fast, eventually climaxing with a cloud of acid synths and mystical vocals. Japanese duo Mascaras, Chida and Cos/Mes' 5ive, straighten up the groove giving a 4/4 beats restyling. The result is a Proto-Techno, Trance influenced soundscape, for foggy late-night dancefloors.
Urban Sorcery is an Italo inspired maze of proto-acid synthesizers, sounding like an enchanted concrete-covered forest. 90's house inspired Redvox is an experiment of cosmic influences. As the vocal becomes part of the groove, the long pads fuel this spaceship pushing it to the borders of time and space [txt from ]
