Only a few months after London’s Lobster Theremin launched its new sub-label Distant Hawaii, with the release of the excellent “Waiting” EP by Hidden Spheres, the sun-melting label prepares to drop its second record. Entitled “Secret Island”, the new 12″ comes from London-based producer Tony Donson under his DJ Sonikku alias. On his debut release, DJ Sonikku delivers three well-crafted, Balearic-tinged house tracks made entirely on a 16-bit Sega Megadrive. Our favorite cut is the EPs title track, a “yearning, heart-warming trip through cloud city that really stretches the magical elements of Donson’s sound into pure house-werk nostalgia.” Proper tropical vibes to melt the winter frost.
DJ Sonikku’s “Secret Island” EP arrives on November 27th on Distant Hawaii.
