Kiko Navarro & DJ Fudge "Ideal EP" PJMS0118


This is the first time that Kiko Navarro & DJ Fudge worked together on a project. The Ideal EP offers three hot tracks: Maximal, which is inspired by the sounds of Kerri Chandler and Hardfloor is getting massive floor reactions already. Fudge played it at the Back2Fundamentals party and the crowd went totally mad. Micra on the flipside mixes minimal sounds with a great deep house spirit to it, including groove, soul and with some "French Kiss" touch. Magnetic Rain is Kiko & Fudge's tribute to mother earth: if we don‘t care about it, there will be more acid and magnetic rain, which will destroy our environment. That's why the track has a dark mood with organic sounds of rain and other melodramatic elements...

DJ Reactions & Reviews

Michael Fossati (
With the "Ideal EP", Kiko Navarro and DJ Fudge present three deep house bombs, with "Maximal" being a relentless track combining acid elements with wicked synth hooks. "Micra" mixes minimal sounds with captivating synths to create a hypnotic feel. Lastly "Magnetic rain" is on a darker tip and features various organic sounds

I bet there are plenty people excited about this collaboration even before hearing so much as the first few bars. As soon as this landed, it looked an intriguing proposition and it doesn’t disappoint. The EP gets underway with “Maximal” - you can expect driving beats and a funky synth bassline which are augmented by a powerful combination of synths that are sure to drive many a dance floor wild. “Micra” is a mood builder that goes deeper dubbier and techier as does “Magnetic Rain” with its oriental flavours. If you like either producer’s previous projects you’ll want to check this out.

****ing killer track !!! Maximal on my mix for traxsource next week !!

Dave Storm
"Maximal" is my pick here...well done, will play and support...on my Cabrio show (SSRAdioUK & Ibiza Global Radio) this week

Kiko & Fudge should collaborate more - this is a nice package. Micra is my fave. Really fresh, deep & techy - can't wait to rock this. The Chandler inspiration on Maximal goes without saying -- bears such a likeness to Atmoshperic Beats! Since that's an all time fave of mine, I'll rock this one too.
