Mic Newman's sample-heavy alias Fantastic Man is back, making his debut on New York's Let's Play House label. It's Jazz , rolling pianos and an interjecting trumpet that are sampled most, quite roughly, in the EP's title track, while 'how are you' or "Wie Gehts", rather, sees Fantastic Man's DJ fader approach to production come back into play - best heard on his track "Look This Way" from 2010. The EP's highlight is the hi-energy skip and twinkling keys of "Sanctuary", while "Scenic Route", sampling some spoken word this time, combines Italo disco with touches of Krautrock and, of course, house music.
