Germany’s Cass. and Gianni Brezzo turn in their first collaboration with Masala Kiss via Hamburg based label – a one we love – Growing Bin. Combining Gianni’s taste for melody and Cass.’s signature sensual sound, the record offers us a collection of lush explorative ambient pieces steeped with new age esotericism and leftfield electronics. A late-night or dreamy-day listen that journeys through balearic synths with ‘Instabubu’ and ‘Umberella’, euphoric downtempo with ‘Autoscooter Lover’ and ‘Der Däne,’ an 80’s soundtrack pitstop with ‘Out of Mind’, and even raga and fourth world with opener ‘Jaybo’. Combined, Masala Kiss is an essential record full of texture; a soft focus peer into a playful and emotional territory; a place both expansive and intimate.
