Boomkat Product Review:
The Rice Twins are Valdemar Gezelius and Jesper Engström and hail from Sweden. Of course eager spotters amongst us will know them already from their brilliant debut "For Penny And Alexis" on Speicher 33. Both of them seem to have a singular ability to conjure exuberant melodies and in a refreshing, unabashed way, place them inside functional beats. Take the tracks "For Dan" - truly Balearic music in the classic sense. "Rome" for instance just seems to build at all the right moments for groovers, while "Poppers" recalls a classic Kompakt track from the heyday of the early numbers. Over this, the Twins unspool a cosmic harmony inviting you to lose your mind. Mental!
