"Hailing from Montpellier, Rodriguez Jr. makes his return to Leena with 'Kids Of Hula,' bringing the coastal sounds of his hometown along with him. After the success of 'Rubbo Swingo,' his first release on Leena, Rodriguez Jr. -- who also comprises half of F Communications' The Youngsters -- went on to release records for Boxer Recordings and Mothership. On Leena's 11th release, he has returned for a second round, once again displaying his softer side as a housey, psychedelic producer. 'Kids of Hula' begins on a strongly melodic note with airy, exotic chords leading the way and occasional accents of tropical percussion lining the backdrop. Old-school throwbacks also have their place here, as the track climaxes with the use of psychedelic vintage sounds that recall the work of space disco giant Lindstrom until they ultimately fuse together with the track's initial harmonies to create a complex and layered final product."
