about

Mungolian Jetset have been keeping a low profile since their last
album Mungodelics (apart from their collaboration with Todd
Terje on his Alfonso Muskedunder track). But now they’re back
with a brand new EP, conveniently titled ‘A City So Convenient’ .
It’s an extended player in four acts featuring retro-futuristic
space-age music, specially designed for disco indulgence – a
nearly 30 minute soundtrack, with the Mongolians working up a
head of steam to power up a series of imaginary urban flyovers.

"Quintessential Trips To Bergen" is a tribute to their musician
friends in that city in western Norway – Bjørn Torske, Erot and
Røyksopp – with its cartoon psychedelic textures over sizzling
Caribbean percussion. The brother-sister numbers "San Fran
Speedhall" and "San Disco Speedhall" are mesmerizing and
shiny, like a Ferrari cruising through disco space, while the title
track takes a deeper dive into mellower oceans. Or as they
explain it themselves: ”We`ve tried to make a theme based EP,
connecting some of our more contemporary influences with our
own style, as well as trying to gain a kind of a classic electronic
vibe to it, retro and futuristic, and hopefully with a bit of
timelessness to it”.
