Eponymous track, "Chick Chick," is a deliciously fruity piece of modern funk that puffs and pants its way around seven-and-a-half minutes of Rhodes jams, cowbell-bongo duets and affectingly rubato bass. The track, of course, first saw light on a Tirk compilation last year, yet—lest it be overlooked in that quarry of nu-disco—more than merits a second outing here and even comes complete with a new 2010 mix that compresses the smoky jazz-bar wheeze of the original into more of a minimal whimper and ultimately derives less impact.
"Fluffy Fruit" is another fine achievement. Unashamedly kitschy to begin with, it seamlessly morphs into an acid groove that underpins the track's glitzier elements with style, while the repeated vocal refrain "I like it" echoes my thoughts exactly. "Rock You Will" and its accompanying dub version—essentially re-edits of Giorgio Moroder's great "I Wanna Rock You"—are perhaps the EP's weaker cuts, only insofar as they inevitably beggar comparison to their predecessor: a chord-change too few and over-tweaking of the EQ are where they eventually lose out. An impressive 12-inch overall, though.
