Hello Skinny is the alias of Tom “Percussionist to the Stars” Skinner, who has worked with such illustrious names as Sons Of Kemet,Mulatu Astatke, Matthew Herbert, Eska, Finn Peters and The Owiny Sigoma Band but here goes it alone as a producer and multi-instrumentalist, with a little help from a few friends who mostly contribute brass and woodwind and vocals.

It’s quite a rhythmic album, as you’d expect from a percussionist I suppose, but it’s not too showy, just lots of tasteful, danceable grooves with restrained, melodic accompaniment from electronics and live instruments alike. It’s quite unclassifiable really, fitting into that loose soundtracky electro acoustic bracket but also being somewhat danceable with techno, house and jazz elements being plainly evident - although not exactly dancefloor music, more of an after-dinner head-nodder.

It reminds me of the last Clark album in a kind of difficult-to-classify coffee-table sophisto-techno sort of way, but this is bouncier and a bit less weird. Interesting stuff. Seems to be universally liked around the office, which is rare.
