Review: This time last year Jeigo tickled our fancy with a debut solo EP that was far more assured, polished and well thought-out than you'd expect from a producer just starting his journey. This follow-up, which also marks the debut of the Air Miles label, is similarly impressive. Highlights are plentiful throughout - check, for example, the glassy-eyed, breakbeat driven sunrise dreaminess of "An Ode To Midnight" - all delay-laden female vocal snippets, spinetingling breakdowns and crunchy drums - and the even deeper and more loved-up "Lime Hawk" with its goose pimple-inducing breakdown. Also worth a look is "Wing Systems", a locked-in foray into dubbed-out techno/house fusion blessed with tons of Afro-centric hand percussion.
Review: Jeigo's previous missive on Air Miles, "An Ode To Midnight", was a lusciously dreamy collection of cuts shot through with loved-up retro-futurism. This time round there's only one original cut, "Fluerella", but it does come backed by three superb remixes. Jeigo's original mix is as wide-eyed, glorious and life affirming as witnessing the sun rise from a chilly mountain top, with bold electronic motifs and dreamy chords rising above a punchy, two-step influenced breakbeat groove. Tom VR emphasizes those two-step influences on his ultra-deep UK garage take, while Ex-Terrestrial re-imagines it as a throbbing slab of psychedelic acid breakbeat. To complete the package, Urulu steps up with a "Liquid Earth" mix that joins the dots between the Orb (circa 1990) and Psychick Warriors ov Gaia.
