The much adored Mister Saturday Night crew have had a penchant of kickstarting careers for unknown talents since they stamped their first record, a debut release from a producer by the name of Anthony Naples – perhaps some of you have heard of him? The label’s twentieth EP introduces another unknown to the fray, Japan native Jun Kamoda, and the product firmly indicates this could well be the sparking of another prosperous producer/DJ career.
"Kamoda has clearly sought to embody the friendly, funky and hedonistic fervour of a Mister Saturday/Sunday party with three full on bangers all at peak time tempos."
This is by no means a shy debut and Kamoda has clearly sought to embody the friendly, funky and hedonistic fervour of a Mister Saturday/Sunday party with three full on bangers all at peak time tempos. ‘Physical Graffiti‘ starts in a housified p-funk territory, and as more samples and loops join in the fun it fuses well with a hazy balearic vibe, albeit one component sounds all too much like an incoming Facebook message.
Finely pattering staccato percussion is the driving force behind ‘The Clay‘ which can fall under the appetising genre classification of afro-acid. It’s another stomper that might have otherwise fit snugly into JD Twitch’s Autonomous Africa catalogue, and one to surely establish a residency within Auntie Flo’s record bag.
After ambient swirls and some finely pitched cymbals ‘Excitus‘ kicks into some disco-tinged big-room house with shrieking male vocals, bouncing bass, sprinkled with percussive murmurs. It tops off a triple A side EP, the kind that’s resounding in money well spent for its prospective DJs. It’s another winner from the ever reliable Mister Saturday Night print.
The Clay EP is out now on Mister Saturday Night, order a vinyl copy from Boomkat.
