Kris Menace


New State
If Monsieur Menace was trying to make an elegant, subtly epic Ibizan anthem bursting with flavours from his past tunes, it's mission accomplished. 'Metropolis' sounds like something you already know but can't quite place, the hallmark of a track destined for success. It's nothing complicated; just a soft, lazy bassline and gentle beats to match, but the keyboard hooks lift it high in both the 'Night' and slightly different 'Day' versions and the melody sticks like glue. A selection of mostly tougher and/or deeper mixes come from Joe and Will Ask, Serge Santiago and Zoo Brazil, but in truth this is a record that needs nothing added nor nothing taken away.
