Ok, if you're coming into FC Kahuna on the back of Hayling expecting an album in a similar vein, you're going to be disappointed. FC Kahuna are one of the finest gritty dirty dirty house acts that you can find today. As a result, this is a house album! Where FC Kahuna's quality shows through is their ability to straddle genres at ease, being able to please indie heads and chillout heads in one fell swoop. House fans will find themselves right at home in the almost Daft Punk electronic disco of Glitterball, revel in the menacing bass of Growler and be simply extatic over the upcoming single, Nothing Is Wrong (for me, the #1 track here). Then there is the other side of FC Kahuna, the gentle chillout of Hayling, soothing trip hop beats and synths with softly sung vocals, indie heads might find their home in Fear Of Guitars or the electro-pop of Machine Says Yes.
FC Kahuna have created something with their own unique vision. No-one has a sound like Kahuna, but this album shows that there is more to the world of Kahuna than gritty bleep house. Its a quality vision, also worth checking is their 'Another Fine Mess' mix they've done. Welcome to Kahuna.
ps. you'll see two versions of this album available, one on electroclash label City Rockers, and the more recent addition on Fatboy's Skint label. There's no real difference to the tracks, the order has been shifted and the packaging re-done. The quality is still intact however! ;)

Experimental and diverse vocals, minimal soundscapes, gentle build up and roaring breakbeat crescendos. To appreciate the fast and funky, you have to have experienced the slow and moody. "Machine Says Yes" is the complete package and has enough variety to satisfy dance music fans of all genres.
Acid bloops, big beat breaks, deep house vocals, ambient pads, electro snares, 80's synthesiser samples and Daft Punk funk.
The title track fizzes with luscious, arcade game immitation sounds, which are muted and finely balanced by the nonchalant and laidback vocals, which are reminicent of Beth Orton (on her collaboration with The Chemical Brothers).
"Nothing is wrong" growls on a bed of no frills 4/4 beats and the sassy vocals make this, and "Mindset to cycle" comparable to Playgroup, in a 80's kitch kind of way.
Amongst the electro experimentaion is "Hayling". As a big fan of chill out I would have to name this the highlight track. Maybe because of its contrast to the rest of the album, and it's freshness. The sounds are more natural and flowing, the vocals are lush and deep. It contradicts most of what has been heard so far and would not be out of place on a Fridge or Orbital album.
"North Pole Transmission" has a strong Chemical brothers vibe. The private psychedelic reel anyone?
Come to think of it, there aren't really many original ideas here. The album chops and changes, but follows formula created by others before them. It still sounds fantastic, but I wouldn't go so far as to call it groundbreaking.
It's a welcome addition to albums by the artists I have named above, and in places, it out-does them.

I just love this album, the best thing about it is its easy to liten to on any occasion, FC kahunas music is that sort of music where you can appreciate it at any time.
I find my self putting it on when i'm just chilling or working, and also when i'm off out on the razz, it realy gets me in the mood because of its funkyness and GO!
I bought machines say yes after hearing a few tracks on the radio (pete tong and seb fontaine, radio 1) namely the track machines say yes because it stook in my head whn i heard it and the single wasn't out at the time. I decided to buy the album and now i cant stop playing it, its great.
if your in to the whole progressive house and electric funk style dance scene then this album is definately for you, and even if your not then i'd still defiantely reckomend that this is cd you need in your collection.
I love the versitillity FC uses, from glitterball, a faster and more energetic track with a beast of a baseline and cool sounding FX, to the mellow and relaxing hayling, which just sends a chill down your spine when you hear the simple but tingling melody, and the totaly harmonic vocals.
Its an album that grows on you every time you liten to it, i definateley reckomend you buy it.

I bought Machine Says Yes after reading reviews that it was sleeper album of the year and buy this if you like Dig Your Own Hole. I was suprised as it was even better than that it blew me a way. The production is tight and the tunes are fresh and funky. They are producers to watch!

I first saw Kahuna oooohhh at the end of 2002 supporting Royksopp (whose album I hope you all have!) , and again supporting Dirty Vegas in march this year. Their live act is fantastic, they always manage to get people bouncing all over the place, or nodding their heads in appreciation to the downbeat tracks.
Anyway, this album reminds me a bit of Layo & bushwacka's Night Works. It has that same mixed bag vibe, it combines hard up, bass heavy, rockin' dance tracks, like Microcuts, and the smackhead tune Glitterball, with chillout excursions a la hayling, north pole transmission and fear of guitars. The rest are, well, kinda weird. No wait, make that experimental. The tracks may be weird but theyre a lot of fun, greeat to listen to and funky too.
The album flows well between tracks, but my only problem is 'Growler' which is an OK track but it drags on for way toolong, and doesnt really do anything, which is a shame as its right in the middle of the album and holds it all up. Oh well, not even that can drag it down from 5 stars. Go buy if you like Dirty Vegas, Royksopp, and maybe even Underworld, the Chems etc.
