Japanese producer Hirofumi Goto aka Rondenion follows up releases on Rush Hour and Still Music with more dope jams on Extra Virgin. Goto opens with a homage to slow-mo house, although our eyebrows were initially raised when we clocked the BPM at 86. The thing is, it really works: too often slow house tracks simply sound like a 120 BPM tune pitched way down - but Rondenion inserts a killer groove on "Beginning of the Ring" that is actually sounds perfect as it is, blending a hip-hop tempo with clever sampling. Indeed Rondenion's renowned MPC loving soul and disco-sampling style is also on full display for B Side track "In One's Mind", which could quite easily be Raw Cut #7. "Like A Child" rounds things off with an insouciant piano melody, shuffling hi-hats and a raw jackin' beat.
