Not much is known about Dr Packer but what we do know is that his sound is both inimitable and funky as hell. He's a straight-up edit man, full stop, and this time it's five roots reggae tunes which have been reshaped into more danceable forms. The opener "Someone Has My Number" is particularly groovy and fit for the summer months, but even the steppers, Shaka-style beat on "Chasing Devils" is pretty suited to your sunshine raving.
Homework. What's left to say about Daft Punk's monumental 1997 debut album that hasn't already been said? It's an LP that everybody loves even if some think it's their best work and others think it was only a hint of the really good stuff to follow. Well Mato has something more to say on the matter, going so far as to rework the whole shebang in a dub reggae style. It's a brave move, but guess what? It totally works, particularly on the spacey "Revolution 909" and the honey vocal-led "Around The World".
