Xmas Rush/Mi Cyaan Believe It

Border Community's Nathan Fake and the luminescent DJ Koze bunk in for this double bill of warped brilliance on Koze's own fledgling Pampa label. Fake tries to out-weird Koze, and makes a decent fist of it too, with a bleeping, tweeting, mind-melting, bouncing houser, which in its former half boasts a vintage lounge Christmas sample and in the latter a dream-like breakdown. Koze drops the wonkiness with 'Mi Cyaan Believe It', a hypnotic loop bonanza with a queasy vocal from dub poet Michael Smith. If this single was a person, it would be sectioned. Koze is so good, it's sickening.
