Part of Juju & Jordash’s charm comes from their eclecticism. The pair are musicians as much as they are producers, and they incorporate a range of instruments into their records and live sets. As a result, they are liable to shift from jacking, acidic house to spaced-out dub within the span of a track or two. They are just as good when they play it straight, however. That’s largely what they do on Waldorf Salad, a new 12″ named in tribute to Waldorf Music AG, a synthesizer company. The record’s two tracks are totally lively, but both maintain a focused course — i.e. neither breaks into a melodica solo or anything like that.

The title track counters glittering, circular synth lines with a tough, strutting rhythm, while the airy “Third Planet From Altair” insistently bounds forward atop a marbled bass line. The premises are simple, but not without their share of nuance — the delicate synth sounds on the latter, for example, could have come from (Juju & Jordash associate) Move D’s sublime collaborations with Benjamin Brunn (I’m thinking of “Love The One You’re With”). Still, these are generally straightforward pieces whose tightly wound arrangements do most of the heavy lifting. Their trance-like, locked processions convey a sleek sense of movement.
