Words by Andy Buchan for Infusion Magazine
Dance music isn’t just about heavy 4/4 beats and repetitive percussion. And listening to MUUI’s debut album, that’s never been more apparent as vintage synths, half-heard vocals and shimmering production combine to create a magical electronic album. MUUI’s alter ego, Patrik Carrera, has already helped shape Dubai’s club scene first at Sanctuary and now at Armani Prive, and after several years of hard work has finally got his sonic thoughts down on Between The Lines.
Endlessly inventive, each track swaggers with more ideas in a minute than most pop records have in an hour. And the DJs out there will be all over tracks like ‘Time Goes By,’ with its stuttered piano groove, while ‘Colour Outside The Line’ sounds like a more straightlaced Four Tet. If you’re a fan of Gold Panda, Mount Kimbie or John Talabot, check out and support this excellent album.
