Featuring truly the most horrible sleeve I’ve seen this week. One of those naked man and child pictures that people sometimes post on facebook to show dad and offspring in perfect natural harmony but omitting to realise that nobody wants to see anyone naked. Particularly a defenceless child.
Its on Brainfeeder so I’m excited to give it a go. Immediately I am struck with the opening track ‘In My World’ which is as J Dilla-ish as it gets. Unlike Dilla the vocals that are placed on top, though scatted a bit, are sung and err a bit on the new-agey side of things. You'll know what I mean if/when you hear it. ‘Cosmic Caller’ is smooth-as-a-silk-scarf slab of West Coast chop-up. The production as on a lot of Brainfeeder stuff is all over the bloody shop. Sounding like it was recorded on a particularly turbulent sea, it wibbles this way and that, threatens to go overboard, stops, starts, stops again. ‘The Mood Is Right’ is another killer effort, I mean... Dilla... come on. You can’t get more Dilla than this though the flange of Fly-Lo is in evidence as is Madlib style beatery.
This is far more of a cut and splice than previous tracks - he got a big fat bass sound going on which I’m liking and if you had a criticism its just that you wish it would settle down for a minute, in that way it reminds me of the Lapalux on Brainfeeder with lots of the top down Thundercat sound tossed in.
