Let it never be said that I'm not a man who likes it slow. How are you supposed to enjoy all the indulgent detail of a record if it's flying past too fast to catch. No, give me silky slow grooves any day. I'm happy to report that this record is slow. It's one of those bass-driven electronic type records but it's got more in common with the likes of Balam Acab than any of the dubsteppaz doing the rounds (although I guess the Burial comparisons will be inevitable and plentiful). It's got some quite uplifting vibes going on, and influences coming from all over the place. I mean, there's room to reference cosmic synth, hip-hop and classic r'n'b in the same track, right? Indeed there is, and without even breaking a sweat apparently. Proper cool grooves on here, with muffled vocal samples and simple synthetic melodies. It conjures images in my mind of an idyllic, carefree summer I'm yet to have. Let's hope it's this year. I'm much more impressed than I expected to be to be honest. It gets all dark and foreboding on closer 'Knowledge' with expansive boomy drones and a tabla rhythm paired with a stuttering electronic beat for a late night drift voyage of excellent quality. A bit of a departure from the first three tracks but all these songs are fresh.
