SCSI-9 Easy As Down
- Words: Walter Wasacz
- Label: Kompakt
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
Russians Anton Kubikov and Maxim Milutenko started looking west in the late 1990s, when they began releasing their pop-minimal, tech-house tunes on German labels Force Tracks and Salo. But it has been on Kompakt that the pair known as SCSI-9 has found a most comfy fit. On Easy as Down, their second full-length after 2006’s excellent The Line of Nine, SCSI-9 expands the sound to include elements of Euro lounge jazz and trance, which tend to overwhelm after repeat listens. The best tracks are the mid-range groovers “Outtro,” “Nothing Will Change It,” and “Blue Wolf From North,” which scores points on title alone.
