Australia is known for its Sydney Opera House, Great Barrier Reef, the vast desert wilderness and unique animal species including kangaroos and duck-billed platypuses; but is also known for its well-crafted music output and deep love for optimistic sensual tunes. This is the case here with the first release of a mysterious project called Ponzu Island, there is absolutely no info available on the artist, so let your ears judge without prejudice. His first effort comes in the form of a 3 track EP including «Super Koto», «Ponzu Beach» and «Ponzu Logic», they sound like if Morgan Geist and Todd Terje took some acid and locked themselves in a room with a sea view, a synth, and a computer. Welcome to Ponzu Island. To complete the EP the label counted with Andras Fox, another Aussie who has already gained much respect for his simply-perfect micro house productions (btw don’t miss his live set if you ever have the chance). Andras revisits the track «Super Koto» in the form of an extended mix with a slower bpm and his magic touch here and there. On the flip side Apersonal’s local producer Trujillo does his usual thing remixing «Ponzu Logic», closing the EP into a deep and darker territory. By now you will be in the middle in the desert asking yourself how you got there..
