Various Artists, Kaihoisa pt3 [Eat This Records – ETR6C/D, 2002]

January 28th, 2003

The two previous releases were a 7-inch single and a 10-inch single and apparently all of the tracks are supposed to be interpretations of the word “Kaihoisa”. L’Usine’s “upcgriqr” was one of last year’s best tracks with nice intro and build-up leading to forward moving beats, deep bass and the sweetest of melodies. Gosub goes down the purists’ electro road with just that, a purist electro track entitled “overtown”. Recently reviewed Mitchell Akiyama makes the flip side’s first track “force to port”. However there’re no similarities between his “Meridial” release and the track in question an altogether different take on things are in play in this warm, forward moving electronic treat. It is followed by Math’s “hex” melancholic wizardry with slightly distorted down-tempo beats alongside a lonely forceful well-paced melody. Already stated that this, the third part “Kaihoisa” is excellent and naturally it also comes warmly recommended!
