Malmo-based scalpel fiend Sergio Rizzolo describes his style as "stoner disco". Having previously delivered two typically baked collections of edits for Joe's Bakery, he brings his brand of redeye-friendly dancefloor haziness to Amen Brother. There's naturally much to enjoy, from the winding Euro synth-rock of "Four Twenty" and Rare Earth-goes-psychedelic "The Odyssey" (probably our pick of the bunch), to the laidback, dubbed-out swing of "Strangers World". Also rather impressive is opener "Stoned Apes", an attractive and floor-friendly cut-up of an old stoner funk track blessed with cosmic synths and a killer bassline.
