Punny name alert but don’t worry, the music on this sublime disc of wax is no joke - this is one of the best things NNF have put their name to in the last couple of years. A five track LP is this and from the kick off you’re in a cosmic new-age funk dream-land that doesn’t let up. From what I can figure there are three “movements” on the first side that blend into one progressive blockbuster that absolutely slays your mind. From the off, the deep sensual bass noodles and cascading Arp-induced arpeggios draw you into a world of lush astral/aquatic beauty. Then come the sharp old-skool electro beats and a psychedelic maelstrom of warm vintage synth worship. The Good Lady Biz reckons there’s some incredibly fine sequencing going on here that adds that extra-special dimension.
The eerie breakdown around the middle recalls early Oneohtrix before the gorgeous play-out of ever-ascending bubbling Carpenter-style rhythms propel you right into the stars. This is a deep trance-inducing record that transcends the retro party line and takes your mind into hyperspace for a wild breathless fuck.
Flipping over for a way deep slice of vintage cosmic disco with a thumping house 4/4 - loads of fluttery hi hats, funked-out bass and wild meandering synth. This is just the kind of sexed-up party music you want to hear at the house party at the end of the universe - beautiful, involving, warm and tactile - just classic through and through. This side concludes with another cerebral aural tapestry of ricocheting, penetrating synthesizer journeying that will leave you completely satiated with a massive smile on your face. One of the most full on ‘70s-style synth records I’ve ever heard.
