I remember being surprised and impressed when I heard Underworld’s Second Toughest in the Infants because it was mellow and complex – not what I was expecting at all. It was a rock album using synths instead of guitars. Well, guitar samples were there. And here. This is a lot like that. Most people say DJ Shadow and I get that. People who know DJ Food cite that as well and 2CC featured on that one as well, so again it rings true. I’ve even read psychedelia and folk mentioned in relation to 2CC so that suggests it’s not exactly Chase & Status.
I’ve got a whole album review submitted to Collapse Board so you can read about it there in due course, but in the meantime, watch this new video. If you like melancholy, sophisticated electronic music, you’ll like this very much.
