James Rod – Cosmic Japan EP
Spain’s very own wobbly disco master James Rod makes his solo debut on Paper Disco with 3 tracks of (deep breath) cosmic-disco-funk-balearic-banger-business. Let’s just say these are primed and ready for some serious dance moves.
Cosmic Japan gets the party started and it is over seven minutes of pure sun soaked ace-ness. There’s a a bubbling NRG bass, laser stabbing synths and pads to die for so climb aboard, next stop the all night discotheque!
Next up, Double Night Straight heads straight for the bongos and 80s drum machine. Before long the pads & synths start to bounce and fizz before the thumping bass gets serious. If there’s not a strobe running while this bangs out complain to the management.
Closing off Night Stratus slows things down slightly and slips a few microdots into your Cinzano for truly hypnotic disco chugger. There’s a massive off kilter dirty bass plus a massive jug of pitched down slo-mo drug funk to get lost in.
