The fifth chapter of Superpitcher’s Golden Rave Days comes very quickly after the last outing and this makes us perk up with joy given just how special this material is. No jokes; this is Aksel Schaufler’s best work in years, and perhaps even surpasses the man’s extensive appearances for the likes of the mighty Kompakt imprint. Each one of these EPs has been different and explorative; this time “Bluesin” approaches a house flex through slow, tribal-like percussion and African vocals, ending up with a truly enchanting piece of mid-tempo dance music. Over on Side B, “Burkina” retains that subtle tribalism, and the mystical percussive pulse, except that here the mood is darker, more moving and just on the right side of eerie. Another fine addition to this increasingly pleasing series.
