Andrea Pedra first donned the Kian T alias in January 2015, delivering a fine, digital-only debut for Toy Tonics. This return to the popular German deep house imprint follows hot on the heels of tasty 12" singles for Secret Reels and Big Bait Records. Title track "Room 69" is a warm and woozy affair, with drowsy vocal samples weaving in an out of a mix dominated by loose analogue bass, rich chords, spacey lead lines and hissing percussion. Munich-based Alkalino wisely pushes the bassline to the fore on his rolling, stripped-back remix. There's deeper, wonkier fare to be found on the flip, where the James Brown-sampling quirkiness of "Good Things", and acid-flecked deep house warmth of "In My Eyes" both impress.
