Notes: Over the last couple of years, Aussie veteran Fantastic Man (AKA Mic Newman) has subtly shifted his trademark sounds away from soul and disco influenced deep house towards a more hallucinatory, trance and ambient techno inspired take on house and breaks. It's that retro-futurist sound that comes to the fore on his first Kalahari Oyster Cult release. He first adds chiming ambient techno melodies and glassy-eyed electronics to crispy breaks and seriously squelchy breaks on the gorgeous title track, before blurring the boundaries between '89-style uk breaks, acid and psychedelic techno on 'Bioxy'. He opts for a spacey, sub-heavy, subtly bleep-influenced flex on 'Alpha', while 'Trojan Force' is a yearning chunk of mushroom-fuelled sunrise house heaviness. Terrific stuff all told. (Juno review)
