The Juno review team is not afraid to admit a lack of familiarity with U-Ka before the release of their debut album Supernova, but we're happy to have discovered this pair of disconauts from in the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen as the album was a cosmic wonder. It's already been complemented by one round of high profile remixes but Groovitron really spoil us with a second that's just as good! A record featuring the collective talents of Idjut Boys, Frisvold & Lindbaek, Above Machine's SLO and Seahawks is likely to pique the interest of any self respecting disco punk and you won't be disappointed with their efforts here. The 'Grande Salle' remix of the album's title track from Idjut Boys is an obvious highlight, with a stripped back dubby house groove allowing the space for a wonderfully warm arpeggiated synth line to shine. Frisvold & Lindbaek set the delayometer to 15 on their killer refix of "Farewell" whilst the B Side offers a slightly more horizontal take on U-Ka's work from SLO and Seahawks.
