4 stars MICROKINGDOM have come back with shifting their musical style into much more electronic one. Their debut creation 'Three Compositions Of No Jazz' is my favourite one as an authentic electro-jazz, followed by 'Return To The Valley Of The Jeep Beats' released in autumn of 2017, that sounds more electronic and less jazzy, and more and more weirder and queerer. At least for me they play as naturally in this creation as previously, and sounds like they would have produced this specialty in a manner of composure. Guess we may approve it as if a great wine flavoured more flowery, more deeply matured upon getting warmer.

From the first track 'Hot Echoes' we can be drenched in their quirky percussive electronika, featuring dissonant electric guitar noises and freaky jazzy saxophone sounds. Quite ambient but impressive for electronic fans (a tad tough for authentic jazz fans though). Also 'Moon Driver' has such a flowery flavour like the previous one, that notifies the audience of their pleasure really. On the contrary, 'Public Bass House' is flooded with perfect ambient therapy and ghostly terrorvision. 'Space Jog' or 'Disgusting Sunset' digs non-jazzy electroambient madness out, which cannot remind us of their debut, but who cares?

As a result, I suppose they would have molted into their adult ... err ... basic soundstyle. This is my favourite too!
