Morgan King is a bit of a UK legend. Having first come though in the late 80s, he was on everyone's radar, including greats like Depeche Mode. He has never gone away, and his spirit is still firmly felt in the music that's being made today. This new LP, Grains & Grams is more liberatory compared to his previous output, with the producer going beyond the more predictable synthwave jams being replicated today. The mood is, indeed, somber and pensive, but King's voice is an uplifting affair, touching down on the speakers with the confidence and vision of an artist who was around during the height of the UK electronic scene.
