I like this NY champs stuff. Coming from a junglist background hasn't decimated his love for more soulful grooves. His output is pretty consistent, quality-wise and you're always gonna be on safe ground when a record opens with a guest vocal spot from the gorgeous Anneka. Her silky dream-like voice glides along, virtually dripping off the sides of 'Gospel of Opal'. There's nothing particularly groudbreaking on here - it seems like a slightly retro-sounding trawl through the more chilled-out end of clubby electronica - so you'll hear splashes of contemporary soul, classic ambient techno, funky stuttering 2-step, spots of "intelligent" drum 'n' bass, loved-up old-skool rave and a the odd braindance-flecked wibble. The thing which makes this album so enjoyable is the obviously astute attention to detail & the blending of modern technologies with more established retro styles. I like him best on the amazing title track when he makes his trippy, moody garage stuff. Shimmering synths, scintilating percussion & spectral vocal snippets ride a brooding low-end from his jungle days and I could lie down & bliss out to that sound for all eternity. So nothing new but by the time you reach the middle, you'll have been sucked right in!!
