"Kindisch scores again with a brand new EP from Vita, aka Berlin-based Swede Mikael Stavöstrand. Mikael, boss of Sunset Disko Records, is no stranger to Kindisch, having previously released an EP on the imprint as The Skull. He adopts the alias Vita for three tracks of sun-kissed minimal funk which employ the vocal talents of Erika Alexandersson. The title-track is a beautifully languid piece of music: Mikael underpins Erika Alexandersson's sleepy vocal with elegant, finger-picked guitar licks which immediately tell us 'Daydream' isn't going to take an obvious route. As the track progresses, the drums toughen ever so slightly, while subtle effects and percussive embellishments come and go like half-forgotten memories. This is a track which, within its modest five minute duration, will transport you to a more beautiful, warm and, above all, psychedelic place -- a blissed-out 'Daydream' from which you won't want to awake. On the flip, you'll find 'Mare Mare' -- a hazy and low-slung but nonetheless raw funk bomb, Erika Alexandersson's lyrics about 'sunlight on your shoulders' providing the perfect counterpoint to the fat, distorted bassline and spacious, mid-paced 4x4 rhythm which drives the track forward. It's all about the way Mikael builds and relieves the percussive intensity, unleashing wave after wave of hectic congas and shakers but repeatedly stripping things back down to that fat, simple and irresistible bass, kickdrum and snare groove. 'Mare Mare' is a deep, heady beachside classic in the making which morphs and mutates in such depth and detail that the ear can scarcely keep up."
