A relative newcomer, the unique and infectious energy that Kayroy (real name Finnian Langham) brings to both his production work and DJ sets is catching the ears and hearts of dance floors from his hometown Melbourne, Australia, to the far reaches of the milky way. What began as a love of the disco era has grown to encompass everything from obscure deep cuts of 80’s synthpop to trippy acid tinged techno - music which builds on the foundations laid in smokey, sweaty rooms lit by mirror balls all those years ago. It all comes down to his love of a good tune, and the pursuit of a good boog.
Review: Da Funk is in full effect on this ace two-tracker from Melbourne disco producer Kayroy, who's previously featured on labels such as Whiskey Disco and Finer Things. In its Original Mix form, 'Harlequin Fiasco' is an unabashed late 70s-style disco romp that recalls the work of glossy, hi-camp outfits like Lipps Inc or Voyage, complete with space disco synths, wukka-wukking geetars and a suitably rumpshaking b-line, but the accompanying In Flagranti Dub flips the script completely as it floats chunks of the original in and out of a proper hefty dub cut that wouldn't disgrace Jammy or Tubby themselves - an unexpected trick that works remarkably well. junodownload.com
