The latest release from Mr. Felix Bloxsom, better known as the awesome Plastic Plates, is actually his début EP. Which seems weird as his tracks and reMixes have been gracing these pages for a while now, but if you are going to only just release your début EP, then you can do a lot worse than being picked up by Kitsuné Music as a label.
Simon Lord steps up for vocal duties on the EP’s lead track, Things I Didn’t Know I Loved is an upbeat, catchy slice of slick ElectroPop with a Disco groove. Maybe released just a little too late to catch the heights of the summer, the track nonetheless put you in a summery mood with it’s bouncy keys, infectious piano and smooth vocal. Toy’s is the perfect port-Italo track, the kind Kitsuné are really pushing these days, with a UK late ‘80’s SynthPop bassline and Disco drums the track sprinkles on a little rave lead and it’s all set to blow up dancefloors everywhere. The EP’s remaining original, More Than Love, is the deep Disco antithesis to the EP’s Poppier openers. Growling, funky basslines and a hypnotic Acid line underpin some seriously Cosmic synth work. Not on the EP, but a free download, is this reMix of the lead track from Amine Edge & Dance, who turn the track into deep ‘90’s House territory.
