Review: The first "KM Editions" EP of the year, it's another essential addition to the collection as the London editor lays down three very distinct chapters. "Kendo Rocks" pays homage to UK wrestling OG Kendo Nagasaki with feint Oriental motifs over a steady chugging, dubby groove while "Bernie's Boogie" takes us on a hazy, balmy Gainsbourg style trip. Finally we hit "Getting Spacey Again" with a juicy synth-laced, slap-bassed disco groove looped up with raw majesty. Get mashed.
Review: London-based producer Keyboard Masher has been flying out a no-nonsense brand of disco-infected grooves since 2010 on their own KM Editions label. Devoid of hype and placing the emphasis on the music, the eighth installment in this crucial series of seductive late night jams packs in more boogie than you can shake a particularly funky stick at. "Ferry Home" strikes an irresistible 80s note with its live band undercurrent, while "I'm Still Qualified" slinks down into a more sultry mood before "Twin Magjik" heads skywards on a bed of twinkling synth tones. Sweet disco tones don't come fresher than this.
