Mika Right Place, Right Time
- Words: Liz Cordingley
- Label: Klein
Synthetic fun, house headiness, and breakbeat cool are equally at home on Mika's second full-length for Austria's Klein. You might even say it's all quite well-timed and well-placed. Mika marries the familiar with the futuristic, crafting socially lubricating party vibes that flow between bubbly dancecapades and street-level lounge grooves. Breathy, blithe vocals keep a lighthearted air throughout shifts in tempo and mood. Melodic strength takes a backseat to nimble production, but the remake of the Beatles' "I'm Looking Through You" is so deft in reinvention, it almost slips past recognition.
