Last seen on that blinding Rare Birds release for Jon Rust's Levels label, Estonia's most famous son Raul Saaremets, aka Ajukaja, returns with a new collaborative release with Maria Minerva on his own Porridge Bullet label. Whilst Minerva's found acclaim for her material on Amanda Brown's 100% Silk label, working with Ajukaja tends to bring out the wonderfully weird side in her and that's definitely the case on the C U Again EP. Opening track "C U Again" will coax listeners in, with Saaremets' crisp house backbone the perfect accompaniment to those detuned synths and Minerva's distinct vocal delivery. "Bring Me Down" is reminiscent of early Hype Williams, whilst "All The Heart Breaks" is a hi NRG anthem that will be embraced by the Dalston Superstore set and the psychedelically charged "Igav Ja Suva" defies easy categorisation.
