Colorhadoo is the latest alias. It arrives with the Zanzibar EP, a three-track 12-inch for Cristi Cons and Vlad Caia's Amphia label. The record's key difference is a strong focus on psychedelic sounds, exemplified in the 13-minute "J Strawberry." It's Zanzibar's standout, built with a half-time beat and a collage of warped vocal snippets, synths, chants and reverb. Most of Rhadoo's music is trippy, but "J Strawberry," a track without any focus on functionality, is on another level. It would be risky to pull it out at a party, but it's easy to imagine the cinematic atmosphere working its magic.
There are two more obvious dance floor cuts to choose from. Cristi Cons reworks "J Strawberry" into a functional, bass-heavy roller, while "Zanzibar," the brightest track here, makes use of a warped melody and a stomping groove. They round off a delightfully varied EP.
