Cantoma - Kasoto (Noche Espanola, DJ Speedy Boarding, Karel Arbus & Eiji Takamatsu mixes)
Reverso 68 main man Phil Mison has been casually rolling out summery slinkers as Cantoma for nearly 20 years now, and a fair wedge of his most recent material has landed on Highwood Recordings. He offers up a "Noche Espanola" remix of "Kasoto" as the first track on this latest 12", and it's a quintessentially 80s flavoured affair soaked in balmy synths, MIDI brass and vibes aplenty. DJ Speedy Boarding is a new name that may or may not be Mison in disguise, but whatever the case their take on "Kasoto" is fantastic - a bleepy, deliciously deep acid house jam that should worm its way into many a bag. Hold tight for Karel Arbus and Eiji Takamatsu's stunning twist on the track to finish, which moves through gorgeous Japanese instrumentation for a thoroughly individual version for mellower moments.
