Boomkat Product Review:
Greeen Linez do that buttered boogie thang again with 2nd album 'Izu King Street' for the Diskotopia label. Greased up thicker than a cross-channel swimmer, it's a beaming celebration of vintage future disco packed with all the horny sax bleats, chime tree washes, and electro-soul pivots you could hope for - perfect for cruising Tokyo at night, or any major metropolis for that matter. It's very much indebted to that shiny strain of early '80s Japanese electronics a la Haruomi Hosono and co, as much as late '80s/early '90s British and American sould spectrum, from boogie-soul thru house and jungle, basically sounding smoother than a gynoid's ass. Evidently, they don't shy away from the shiniest electronic textures and production, unlike so many who prefer to swaddle their sounds in tape hiss, and it's perhaps a pragmatic choice, where like a wipe-clean love hotel room, you come in, get your shiny fill to the max, and leave at the other end, clean but dirty, dirty but clean.
