LP version. Recording artists and husband and wife team Jimi Tenor & Nicole Willis, release the follow-up album in their project Cola & Jimmu, after the debut Enigmatic (HRKL 001CD/LP). The album features their production skills as well as their skillful compositions. With instrumentation by Tenor and beats procured from the vintage gear of Jori Hulkkonen in his Turku studio, the album has a warm feeling and yet is sufficiently exciting for the electronic house heads. There are plenty of string pads, flutes and flute pads, etc., to prick up your ears. Cola & Jimmu once again capture a genuine, old school sound. "Earthly Delights" is a track with a perfect balance of hypnotic acid riffs and jazz elements, while "Immortal Champion" draws from a fascination with Greek & Roman mythology, applied to funky jazz/house, made all the funkier by the percussion of Daniel Oberto from the Machete Horns based in Berlin. "You Keep Me Working" features loads of tension in the harpsichord progression, and there are plenty of jazzy saxes and flutes from Tenor. "Fantabulous" is a sultry nod to Miss Janet Jackson with lots of electronic sounds, jazz inflections and rolling, natural snares. "Open Up Your Chakra" features vocals by the Lehto daughters, and "Meet You at the Crossroads" is akin to Robert Johnson meeting nervous house with swinging percussion and tenor horns. On "No More Wars" acid filters mix with sampled acoustic piano licks as well as congas by Daniel Oberto. "I Give to You" is acid and industrial meeting up with acoustic pianos, cinderblock sounds and filtered percussion.
