For their 6th instalment, Katie Drover’s label Dokutoku Records brings us a sublime EP from the talented and Tini & The Gang member St. Joseph with his ‘Player Nr. 1 EP.’ Three delicious original tracks along with an infectious, groovy number turned out by Arno (aka Einzelkind) complete the package.

We kick the A-side off with ‘Feel’ which is a slow, hypnotic rolling track you’d expect to hear in a basement club in the early hours. A bouncy b-line mixed with drawn on Rhodes notes really take us on a voyage of self-discovery, which leads into ‘Random,’ a jazzy track that sounds like it was produced back in the hay day of the ’90s. Seriously good! The B side really takes things up a gear with Arno's (better known as Einzelkind) remix which is a peak time number that you’ll find hard not to move to. What’s surprising about this is that Arno actually created his version without the benefit of the original parts, giving life to a monstrous track over its 10 minutes ride …very impressive! Rounding off the package is ‘Player Nr 1’, a chuggy, slowed-down groover, providing a lovely 3-minute interlude to close the EP in style.
