Dutch producer Kai Hugo returns as Palmbomen II for part-two of his Memories of Cindy saga.
First imagining the alias with the X-Files Inspired LP back in 2015, Hugo again finds himself visiting the strange world of Palmbomen II, returning to Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space label to pursue his eulogy to a woman called Cindy.
A passage of five plaintive cuts, Memories of Cindy Pt. 2 sees Palmbomen II continue to operate in lo-fi textures and glowful nostalgia, shifting between both club orientated and atmospheric tracks that evoke classic acid house and the New Beat scene of the late ’80s.
As stated by the label, the first three Palmbomen 12”s, Memories of Cindy Pt. 1 – 3, will be available exclusively on vinyl, whilst Pt. 4 will be available exclusively as a “box set” including the first three 12”s.
Check out the accompanied segment below, with the “surreal, neo-noir lens” finding Palmbomen II revisiting Samantha on the set of Real Talk and getting deeper into the demented commercials that color the in between scenes.
