Dorsi Plantar/Long Island Sound/Sune/Ethyene - Odoru Tori EP

What do you get when you cross a Frenchman, a Dane, two Irishmen and a Swede? The debut various artists compilation from Kyoku Records, of course. Gathering the producers who make up their whole discography thus far, the Melbourne-based imprint are welcoming back Dorsi Plantar, Long Island Sound, Sune and Ethy?ne (alongside Folamour and Marc Bianco). Translating from Japanese to a befitting "dancing birds", the Odoru Tori EP is revitalizing the elegant origami series for one more spin. The orizuru, hachidori, oumu and hakucho, that is, the paper crane, the hummingbird, the parrot and the swan are bringing the first run of the handmade array to a suitable conclusion.

On the A side, the Danish-Irish connection is responsible for bringing some summer heat. Dorsi Plantar sheds his usual wistfulness for a slightly moodier, more functional track with "Se?orita Lolita", although still incorporating some of that playful sampling he's now come to be known for. Long Island Sound follow the same recipe that made "Delusions" such a big hit with the intricate sampling and eloquent arrangement of "Ease In". On the flip side, "Californicate" from Sune takes a more laidback approach and channels the breezy and carefree atmosphere of the coastal Golden State. To top things off, Ethy?ne, with the help of Folamour and Marc Bianco, close out the record with a groovy, vocal number that sees them employ their signature French Touch formula to great effect on the simply titled "Good".
