"Pikaya take to the A-side with a flourish of robes and flashing beams of light. 'Jedi' is not the track you're looking for... wait, no -- it absolutely is the track you're looking for, all mind tricks aside. Kicking off with a sparse drum pattern, it quickly shifts from a measured andante to an easy jog, as resonant synths and sweeping filters whip up desert winds and high drama. High, lonesome counterpoints and a moody chord progression carry the faintest whiff of Ennio Morricone's outlaw music, and playful trills -- you could almost swear they were birdcalls -- suggest a secret oasis hidden just behind the next hill. If you find 'Jedi' cinematic, then 'Fango' will really blow your wide-screen mind. Starting with a rhythmic underpinning that's everything you've come to expect from a Cadenza track -- tight, ultra-kinetic, just a little bit jittery -- Pikaya build up layer upon layer of hazy pads and cool arpeggios that shimmer like the aurora borealis. Bullfrog-throated horns occasionally burst in with a fat, amicable fanfare, announcing the arrival of the peak hour. Great, unison handclaps play off against heel-kicking syncopations: madness ensues. And then everything slowly, imperceptibly smears together and loses focus, and the tune fades flickeringly away. Talk about a double feature!"
