'Blue Blue So Electric Blue' twists and turns through a percussive tunnel, with various congas, bongos and what sounds like a West African talking drum coming in and out of the mix to great effect. The backbone of the track is a very simple shuffling groove, perfectly adapted to accommodate a myriad of effects and filters. No frills but funky and full of life, the cut has a whimsical tone that reminds me of a slightly sped up Brett Johnson. This is groovesome, stripped down house of the highest order.
'Cassis' doesn't do much different and utilises some very similar sounds. Indeed, listening to the two tracks consecutively, there’s just a subtle change in pitch and direction before momentum is gathered and we're off on a ride once more, albeit without drums this time. In the end the track is a little bit rawer than 'Blue Blue…' with the shuffle sounding sharper and more abrasive and there are some nice effects and a nagging riff to carry us home.
Both tunes are tightly coiled springs of energy that will get the job done. Workmanlike they may be, but well-executed tracks like these are quality carbohydrates for the floor.
