The mad-as-a-spanner turntablist that is The Gaslamp Killer is back with his debut album proper on Brainfeeder records. I loved this guys’ single for Twisted Nerve which I played to death! So I’m always intrigued by his output even though a lot of it hasn’t struck a chord with me as of yet. This album features a plethora of hip guest stars like Gonjasufi, Adrian Younge, Dimlite, Daedelus, Samiyam and Computer Jay.

The thing I like about him is you never know what you’re gonna get. He’s clearly influenced by a lot of different styles of music and that shows when listening to ‘Breakthrough’. Though there are hip-hop breaks, big bass-lines and samples galore, it’s a varied listen with the whole thing being quite psychedelic and funky. It’s a while since I’ve heard a decent breaks album like this and it’s pushing all the right buttons for me. There’s a hefty global influence in there which apparently comes from a decade of performing and touring around the world. Busy lad! I can see why Flying Lotus has picked this up for his label as it fits in very nicely with his labels’ output so far. Aceness!!
