CRIMEA X play disco-flecked house music - if it was a house that just happened to have been built on the moon! That's right, they play deep house - deep space house, that is! In fact you could say that the Phoros EP is house music that's out of this world! You get the idea. The Italian dance outfit's debut, which is a meeting of minds between creators DJ Rocca and Jukka Reverberi of glam post-rock band Giardina di Miro, is a steady flow of house laced with piano and 1970s sci-fi sound effects they describe as "cosmic disco". And backed by a set of Seaside Resort remixes - on the Sea Of Tranquility I'm guessing - there's more than enough here for an enjoyable short break to their hedonistic house world. Spacious rather than insistent, while Phoros isn't exactly going where no dance act has gone before, you can rest assured that you'll be jetting off to a good place.
This blog aims to link people to music, and I will try to update it as regularly as possible - daily if I can. If you have any questions about the blog, would like to make comments and suggestions or would like to link to this page, feel free to e-mail me, comment on a post or join the forum Sound Off. Without readers' input - or indeed readers - this blog is just a pointless exercise in getting promo CDs sent out to me, so get in touch. I can't be right about everything all of the time - if you disagree with me, please let me know.
Everyone makes mistakes - but as a fully-trained, professional journalist I'd like to think I don't make many. But if I do, I'd like them to be corrected as soon as possible.

Plus, if you're a resident of the UK and you e-mail me to let me know at Isaac_Ashe@MRN.co.uk, I'll post you out a promo CD or two to say "thanks". Terms and conditions apply.
