With a tickling electric charge spreading up to their tongues, the collaboration between Felix Kubin and the Polish space jazz ensemble Mitch & Mitch continues with the release of this Maxi EP. A tribute to Sun Ra and his Arkestra, "Disco 2100 (The Bridge)" combines the music of their Venusian dance track "Disco 2100" (1978) and the lyrics of "The Bridge" (1968). Re-enacting the theatrical character of Sun Ra's later pieces, the Mitches and Kubin cross the bridge from outer space in a slow advancing chant, guided by the compelling baseline of the original. A throbbing tribal Disco which flashes like an intermittent pulsing colour.

On the flip side, "Antarktis Slow Rock" and "Hotel Super Nova" - two Kubin evergreens from the turn of the millenium - shine in a new arrangement by Max Knoth. While retaining the original vibe of the tracks, he clearly pays homage to the classical big band sound.
