9/10 Ant 29 May 2013

I thought I’d show this some love as it’s a really lush sounding album and I was really into John Roberts previous album ‘Glass Eights’.

Basically what we have here is some expertly-crafted, adventurous, deep house music. There’s an oriental, playful feel running throughout the album, often giving me the feeling I’m lounging gracefully in some Japanese water garden. ‘Palace’ is a track to die for, it brings that pure joy and positive energy of proper house music with a kind of melancholy in there too. I’ve been absolutely hammering this track at home and it just does it for me everytime.

What’s interesting about ‘Fences’ is John’s sound palette, there are lots of organic sounds and so although it’s electronic music it feels really earthy. I must admit on first listen I wasn’t as immediately pulled in as with ‘Glass Eights’ but after a couple of spins the tunes really worm their way in. An immensely talented producer really embracing the house format and turning it on its head with his own fresh approach. Some really tender and beautiful moments on this record. Recommended.
