  1. Do U Believe in Pure Love?
  2. Half Moon
  3. Cut Glass

We are happy to announce the next Diskotopia release of 2018, Pure Half Glass, 3 deep cuts from Japan based producer Crysta Nagahori. The A-Side Do U Believe in Pure Love? is a kind of messy hybrid of industrial and slowed down happy hardcore. Mangled breakbeats, inspiriting organ pads, paper-thin synth bass arpeggios and detuned piano chords come together to create a delirious contemporary quasi-anthem. We don’t know exactly what this really is, or how to dance to it (if it was indeed made for that intention) but its sense of euphoria is contagious.

Half Moon is a hallucinogenic magnetite deep house number. Heavily worn and hazy it has a very reverie-esque quality to it. Like your memory of how the club scene sounded in that film your mate’s older brother videoed off the TV and you subsequently borrowed, except in reality it sounded nothing like this at all.

Cut Glass has a heavy 80s Manchester influence, and the live post-punk percussion and bass almost totally obscure the four-to-the-floor 808 kicks propelling the rhythm through new age synth clouds. A heady psychoactive yet foot-shuffling closing number to an exceptionally divergent mini EP.
