Love On The Rocks welcomes Romanian production team Khidja to the roster, another promising left field newcomer and favourite of the likes of Andrew Weatherall. ‘Looki’ is change for the label, a beatless Balearic dream dance, praising the come back of the chill out zone. However, the dance floor is never neglected, the EP containing a versatile spectrum of remixes by Lauer, Fantastic Man and Africaine 808. Bucharest’s own Khidja have been an active part at the local nightclub scene over the past years. After first appearing as co-compilers of the Romanian Jazz LP for Sonar Kollektiv, it was finally a remix for Baris K on [Emotional] Especial in late 2013, which put the duo on the want list of many tasteful DJs around the world. The time was just perfect to appear with oriental soundscapes having been the most sought-after spice in Dance music during that summer period. Two original EPs on Especial and Forgotten Corner popped up in spring 2014 and gave evidence that Khidja scheduled themselves to be around for the long term. Looki stands out to be the perfect Balearic aftermath to Telephones’ prequel release on LOTR. Pursuing the transcendent motive from sunrise to sunset and is far away from the arabesque melodies of their previous productions. Khidja speak their hearts to the sound of the Neo-New-Age generation - no beat, no stress, just a guitar, the beach and the sea. To accompany are 3 remixes to catch any imagination. Godfather of the MDMA-infected sound synthesis, Lauer needs no further introduction, epic as ever, the perfect take, moving the track from chill out to dance floor with uplifting grace. Australian newcomer Fantastic Man is next, dropping the guitar for good and kicks in with a polyrhythmic tribal rhythm for a dance floor friendly mood. Closing the EP are the one and only Africaine 808, who bubble up the original with a cascade of reverbs and delays, embedded in a reduced yet complex dub beat, constantly raising desperate demands for that unattainable peak moment.
