By now, we should all know what to expect from Parisian eccentric Joakim - namely an eclectic, analogue-heavy take on leftfield electronic pop with a distinctive twist. While Tropics of Love isn't easy to pin down, it does boast many of Joakim's usual influences (acid house, synth-pop, IDM, glitch-hop, new wave and classic electronica. Pleasingly, there's a hazy Balearic sensibility running through album highlights "Man on the Moon" and Neil Young cover "On The Beach". Of course, it's not all wide-eyed bagginess with one eye on the horizontal, post-club market; in fact, the album's more upbeat moments - particularly the brilliant "This Is My Life", in which a computerised voice recounts key moments in the producer's music development - arguably hit home hardest.
