This is another essential release from the ever reliable Music From Memory, though don't expect the beatless ambience of Gaussian Curve, or the abstract experimentation of Suso Saiz. This is a blast of funky electronic boogie.

Not quite an album (some of these tracks are fairly short) but much more than an EP, this is an unexpected treat. MFM can be a little 'serious' if I'm being picky, this, much like the Napolean Cherry release a couple I years ago should be filed under fun (k).

Leftfield electro boogie, synths, slinky baselines and a lo-fi ethic make this a pleasure of a listen - I just wish there was a little more of it.
