It's been some time since Brooklyn's Names You Can Trust released a 12" single: some seven years, in fact. Their return to the format seems to have been prompted by necessity; the A-side of NY Hustlers label debut delivers eight minutes of attractively tactile boogie synths, loose, live-sounding drums, cacophonous Latin percussion, attractive Balearic house melodies and the kind of production that recalls other great retro-futurist acts (Escort, Metro Area and Kerrier District, in particular). Similarities with Metro Area are even clearer on the Rhodes-heavy shuffle of "Fly Island '78", while "Fly Island '85" re-invents the same track as a chunk of lilting freestyle/beatbox electro fusion (complete, of course, with those luscious Rhodes lines).
