And although he might call himself Timid, the EPs opening track is anything but shy, asking Do You Like the Budu Bulu? The raw African rhythms combine with classic French Touch disco string hits as we hear traces of tribal chanting enter from the background. For the Yes, Im in my 30s version, he adds some smooth, restrained melodic pads to balance the extroverted attitude. On the flip, Voila Voila is a sweaty, shuffling workout, a bit darker but still very upbeat, tempting you to succumb to your vices. Finally, Staring at the Sea enters dubbier waters, weaving in a recognizable mid-eastern string riff as the mermaids voices echo from the aquatic ruins, pulling you deep under the surface.
