This past June Flosstradamus came into town to play Summit Music Hall along with The Magician (Stephen Fasano) and Plastic Plates, the latter of whom not only played a stellar set, but had to extend it since Fasano was playing a disappearing act in his hotel room (a real diva act, IMHO). There were no complaints on our part, especially after The Magician’s set, when it finally came, was a let down in comparison. This month Plastic Plates released his E.P., Things I Didn’t Know I Loved, on Maison Kitsune, the French label that’s celebrating 10 years of cultivating and celebrating great dance music.
Over the last decade Kitsune has spawned numerous compilations and a roster that includes not only this latest artist, but also the likes of Two Door Cinema Club, Delphic, Beataucue, Housse de Racket, and Is Tropical, along with a clothing line.
This short E.P. trip through Plastic Plate’s candy land is coated with bouncing, bopping goodness, touched with glimmers of 80s synth beats, while riding a deep house train. Can’t wait for his steady work ethic to churn out even more delights on Kitsune for both his original work and his remixes, including the ultra fab Wombats, Van She and Marc Ronson.
