- NYC, HELL 3:00AM by James Ferraro

James Ferraro is back with this new CD ‘NYC, HELL, 3:00AM’, and it’s one of his darker efforts, mixing up cracked, blackened digital ambience, flickering samples, twitching synths grinding mechanically against sparse touches of warm jazzy brass and the occasional bit of skewed r’n’b soul viewed through a blurry, drunken swirl of cold neon and hard concrete.
The title seems quite apt, since the sparse, gleaming void his music conjures here gives something of the feel of a huge city at sleep, Hype Williams wooz and big, spacious beats full of brittle, inconstant details. In places it’s like Talk Talk went into the future and made a computer album, a mess of details which unfurl methodically, challenging the listener to you detach themselves and stand a few metres back where the big picture starts to make sense. For an album where so little happens, there’s an awful lot going on. It’s not as immediate as his last couple of outings but an intriguing effort regardless.
