Yup, another band with similar style is Double. Their Blue album is also excellent.

Double is less melancholic and have more a jazzy vibe.
I have the 2 LPS from the band, the digital remasters and the Kurt Maloo solo albums (The Michael Cretu mix of "COHH" is amazing too)
The only negative point about the original press of "Blue" is the short time playing: less than 36 minutes.
PD: are you heard the first maxi singles? Sounds more experimental w/ african rhythms included.
PD2: Have you heard the pre-Double project of Maloo (Ping Pong) or the first Maloo 7" single (Luna luna)?

Hi AJWAVE,

I only have physical copies of Double 2 albums. Not Kurt Maloo's solos or projects. In fact, just found out about Kurt almost recently. I do have the digital copies of his solo. Will check out the Ping Pong one soon.
