O B J E C T S, the first full-length album from Kito Jempere (a.k.a Kirill Sergeev of Saint Petersburg Disco Spin Club), find the Russian producer moving to his new label Fata Morgana. Despite his inexperience with LPs, O B J E C T S isn't just a bundle of individual tracks with the same sticker slapped on the side, but more of a unified cross section of underground club music from the last twenty years, with fresh house-y elements woven throughout.

Catchy opener "Lumo" sets the pace with its elastic-band stretched bass line that bounds down echoing avenues, hand-held by reverberated vocals and uptempo Latin drum patterns. Then there's album highlight "Gas Station," a gem of a house tune that's not afraid to dive straight into jazz-era brass sections and piano loops. Amidst the upbeat rhythms of the majority of tracks on O B J E C T S, Kito Jempere still manages to get experimental on "Typewriter" and "HW Whales," and sombre on the beautifully produced, Booka Shade-esque vocal track "In the Midnight," with Yana Blinder. O B J E C T S is both solid and exploratory, making it a great first release for Kito Jempere and Fata Morgana. (Fata Morgana)
