Somewhere halfway between lounge and IDM, between jungle and pophouse, there lies a mysterious land only accessible by paying homage to Dego & Kaidi. With their dreamy synthscapes and drums so tight I should spell it tite, their self-titled debut is a free flight halfway between partying and dreaming - or both.
