Soundspecies member Henry Keen returns to the warm bosom of Don't Be Afraid following a two-year absence. The London producer is on-point from the word go, with opener "On The Roads" brilliantly joining the dots between Kaidi Tatham style jazz-funk/broken beat fusion and dusty, Detroit style deep house. You'll find similar organic warmth and jazzy instrumentation at the heart of the altogether deeper "Icy", while "Ants In Amber" sees Keen smother a rock solid, kick-drum dominated beat in gentle acid lines, galactic electronics and bleeping melody lines. Finally, he pushes up the tempo and looks towards South America on the fizzing, broken house highlight that is "Black Cast", where simple marimba melodies rise above a booming, bass-heavy rhythm track.
