Daft Punk have trumpeted their upcoming album as "EDM with real instruments," but attentive listeners know that live instrumentation is nothing new in electronic music. Just ask Magic Mountain High, the live collaboration between Heidelberg house hero Move D and Juju & Jordash, two Israeli-born producers who revel in sumptuous analog psychedelia. J & J’s 2013 album Techno Primitivism was commendable particularly for its breadth of influences, ranging from drone to the dance floor. Meanwhile, for Magic Mountain High's North American debut expect some difficulty with the dry spots of the former tempered by the fun of the latter.
