Boomkat Product Review:
Having opened Magic Wire's account with two of his own future-nostalgic rave creations, Lone hands over the reins to Neon Jung for the label's third outing. And what a record it is: like his label boss, NJ favours a fizzing cocktail of choppy, post-'ardkore drums and wonked-out melodies, and it goes down a treat. 'Just Can't Leave It Alone' rules the A-side, 16-bit strings pining for days gone by while steppers' kicks and claps push onwards into the unknown. Just beautiful. On 'Too Many Facets' the breaks get busier, and the synths go haywire: out of a radioactive electro ooze, spindly arpeggios climb glistening towards the great carnival in the sky - make no mistake, this is the kind of wildly psychedelic but heavily anchored business that just DESTROYS dancefloors. We'd go as far as to say that there's something of Mssrs Atkins and May in the chaotic harmony and sheer bug-eyed imagination of Neon Jung's offerings, though if you're looking for modern comparisons the ruff, technicolour house of Jam City, Kingdom and L-Vis 1990 might be more apposite. Big, big recommendation.
