International Pony, the gorgeous global supergroup from Hamburg comprising Cosmic DJ, Erobique and DJ Koze finally release their second album, after a 4-year long hiatus! Mit Dir Sind Wir Vier contains 12 new tracks and two bonus tracks and one video -- each finer, more exciting and more uplifting than the last. This album shows International Pony radiating a consummate yet juvenile charm that comes over as refreshing, without seeming dumb. And with this new record, we can confidently short list them with Sly Stone, Air and The Philosopher's Stone: future funk! Slow soul numbers avoid all stereotypes while simultaneously using all the tricks in the musical book to cast its spell -- with that uplifting Pony feeling. Whereas their first album We Love Music cross-referenced all the biggest pop styles (hip-hop, house, techno, funk, etc.), this release concentrates all the best Pony moments into a highly-refined sound. The skippiness in the beat, the wonderful lightness of foot (even in the most melancholic moments), the sometimes weird and radiant vocals from Cosmic DJ, the famously gnarly French electronica of DJ Koze, the high pop skills and manifold instrumental capabilities of Erobique -- all melts together here into a consummate, transcendent work of art. Open your arms wide.
