Review: Earlier in his career, there was a fair amount of hype surrounding O'Flynn's hard-to-pigeonhole club cuts, with the producer's outings on Blip Discs and Ninja Tune getting particular attention. Here he delivers his debut album, a wonderfully fluid, evocative and enjoyable set that attractively sashays between languid ambience, Afro and Latin-influenced cut-up club cuts that cannily fuse disco, nu-disco and deep house, drum dubs and percussion jams, and off-kilter affairs that defy simplistic categorization. Highlights are plentiful throughout, from the dreamy dub disco flex of "Tru Dancing" and jazzy deep house warmth of "Painted Wolf", to the huggable dreaminess of two-step shuffler "Celestial" and the loved-up haziness of enveloping closing cut "Neptune".
Review: Championed by Midland & Bradley Zero to name a couple, here are some fresh cuts for the afro-enthusiastic bass music lovers! O'Flynn's first vinyl release sees him flip around a Calypso drum solo on the A side for a seriously powerful and percussive tune, whilst side B reveals an explosion of African vocal chants and melodic treats. A real statement of intent for the first release on this new label.
