Another excursion from child-like pop artist Pete Fowler and his mate who runs/ran the inspirational and often strange Lo recordings (Hairy Butter anyone?). This new long player veers between gorgeous deep, trippy grooves to awful post-Balearic wank. The opener is like Zero 7 meets early Mouse on Mars. You can not fault the detail and production nous that has gone into their work but I'm not so keen on some of the funky cheese that they shoehorn into what would otherwise be really sweet downtempo bliss-scapes.
Updating the kind of ‘70s cosmic chill-out that your dad would have liked is an admirable concept and don't get me wrong, many tracks on this album are rich in colour, vibrancy and have a very peaceful outlook - they really take you to a less hectic level in your mind. For people who like both ‘70s lounge, laid-back disco or holiday programme music. 'Aqua Disco' is basically built around easy-strutting kind of dubby 2am Glastonbury-friendly head candy for folk who dug The Egg or Groove Armada's more cerebral moments. Yes this album is for you and it is undeniably carefree fun.
10/10 InfraRedMan Customer review, 20th October 2012
I have to agree with Kevin on this one. The reviewer has little idea what he or she is talking about with the Groove Armada references. It's nothing like GA.. In fact, it's much better. Aquadisco is an instant classic with me. Highly recommended!
10/10 Kevin Brooks Customer review, 9th October 2012
The review by Bryan is most misleading, this album sounds as much like Groove Armada as Primal Scream sound like My Bloody Valentine. Much further out than the review suggests, at times like Neu or OPN on a disco trip, you really need to listen to the whole album to get the vibe - some tracks are over 10 minutes long. Head over to Boomkat or Piccadilly for a decent review. Definitely one of my albums of the year.
