8/10 Mike Staff review, 13 February 2014

I've got a right big pile of reviews to tackle today so I'm starting off with something I can be confident won't be too brain-scrambling or depressing. I'm confident of this because it's got a mogwai smoking a spliff on the front cover. This 2LP by Naram is his debut but with it being on Jahtari it is, as you would expect, some kind of digi-dub baz. It's a theme album inspired by '80s film soundtracks, so there's plenty of analogue synths going on, as well as loads of guest vocalists including Peter King, Jah Screechy, Asher Senator and Sammy Gold.

It's a pretty upbeat collection, with elements of reggae, dub and dancehall, always delivered at a loose but danceable pace with lots of neat little creep-pop staccato synth melodies, dub-echoed guitar and warm, boomy bass. It's making me feel like I'm in more temperate climes and it hasn't just been raining and windy for several weeks. There's a nice balance between the vocal tracks and instrumentals and the general vibes are warm and bouncy and mid-paced. The first disc plays at 33 and the second one plays at 45, which is slightly confusing.

Fun record though, I approve.
