After a six-month hiatus, synth-wielding proto-house and boogie badman Jex Opolis returns via a first ever appearance on well-regarded Dutch imprint Dekmantel. Interestingly, the Good Timin' boss has mixed things up a little here, seemingly drawing as much influence from mid-'80s European synth-pop as NYC electro and synth-powered electrofunk. A-side "Earth Boy" is particularly good, with Jex Opolis layering waves of sun-kissed electronics and cheery synth-pop melodies atop a rolling electro rhythm. Those after something altogether sleazier should check the two flipside versions of "Desolation", a throbbing affair that sits somewhere between Bobby O's forgotten productions for the Pet Shop Boys, UK Hi-NRG and life-affirming Italo-disco.
