Osaka's champion selector and groove doyen Mori Ra makes his PTP debut with four lavish helpings of synth-splashed disco. Side A sees him teaming up with fellow Macadam Mambo mate ASN with two almost Norwegian-sounding lessons in cosmic synth funk as "California Real" is straight up boogie and "Actual Flash" fuses far-away strings and close-up synth squiggles. Meanwhile side B sees Mori go solo with two more slightly esoteric cuts: "Mermaid" is duffle-coated drama where the operatics and soothing harmonies are under the pressure of sub aquatic textures and "Synchroid Eye" takes us right down into dreamland with its swooning strings and faraway vocal cries. Bliss.
