This time around its a warm welcome back to meso. after his highly acclaimed release "tunga" back at #242, I asked him if he would like to release another ep on kahvi and here is the response.
"Island versus city" is one of these eps that makes kahvi great - pure idm/electronica with a heavily inspired boards of canada vibe. this five tracker has got all the pre-requisites of a cool release - sentimental and nostalgic vibes (nuuk godthab), warm analogue (ymah), early 90s feeling (viper water), and ambient beatless goodness (midnattsol).
Excellent production round off this extreme example of the perfect kahvi release, this one has been on my playlist for some weeks and will continue to do so! Track of choice: ymah. Enjoy!
Has served me well so far in the up late at night department. By midnattsol you are left serene and focused. In fact as Weldroid says, no favorite tracks, best seen as a 20 minute experience. Enriches the life, much thanks!

Now this is the kind of stuff that has to roll for a while before it starts working its magic. Rather simple ingredients building up into a complex experience. Warm sounds for cold nights. No favourite track here, this ep works best as a whole.

Very good. Mr. Meso can take a few minutes of sound make something not just enjoyable, but also 'interesting'. Whether its the quiet landscapes of midnattsol or the dark static of ymah, I can say I enjoyed this release. Welcome back Mr. Meso and thank you for your sounds. :)
