"After ending 2008 with a well received pair of releases from David K and Varoslav, Supplement Facts are pleased to return with their first release of 2009. Having collaborated on the recent Varoslav single, it is time for Parisian trio dOP to take centre stage with their Genius Of The Crowd EP. What began in 2007 with the release of the excellent Between The Blues EP on Circus Company, followed by an initial body of work that created appearances on imprints such as Eklo, Orac Records and Milnor Modern now sees the trio of Clement Zemtsov, Damien Vandesande and Jonathan Illel enter 2009 with two great songs that comprise this latest EP. The title song is a wonderful percussive led piece, with some heady and hypnotic beat programming underpinning the spoken monologue that runs throughout from the late, great poet, novelist and story writer Charles Bukowski. The arrangement has a very loose, live feel, continuing the organic, jazz vibe of not only dOP's production work, but their impressive live shows as well. The EP is completed by the addition of 'Mambo Jumbo,' moving further towards to the ideas that can be found in the live shows, as Clement draws inspiration from tribal influences with the clever beat arrangements that grace the first half of, while the keyboard accompaniment by Damien brings a contemporary lounge feeling into the final track. These prominent ideas are reimagined by Supplement kingpin Guy Gerber's subliminal late night excursion, which following on from his recent success with 'Timing,' looks set to be another DJ favourite."
