Cap-loving Mancunian eccentric Ruf Dug seems to be riding the crest of a wave at the moment. After a promising start to his career, he seems to have settled into a groove, making quality analogue jams that play around with genres wonderfully. He's at it again here. While the title track is to all intents and purposes house, its warm bassline and distorted drums are supplemented by melancholic synths and vintage melodies. Bonus cuts "Ruffy's Day Out" (a sparse, slow and dubbed-out number influenced by proto-house) and "Late Cruise" (Onra on crack, with all manner of spiralling electronics) are equally as potent. If that wasn't enough, label boss Zoovox provides a beautiful, delay-laden dub of the title track complete with densely layered percussion. Near perfect.
