Review: Following the success of his recent LP Sundial (hyped by 6Music and more), Scotsman-in-OZ Jonny Faith, releases a new single from the LP, Neon, backed with both a new track and a remix. The former turntablist has grown musically somewhat over the years and with it's crisp and fizzy soul-hop meanderings, "Neon" is a great example of this development. Album highlight "Firefly" gets reduced into a sparse, killer tropical percussive jam by Clap Clap and newie "Revolve" wraps things up with a chiming, organic melange of rythmic beats and sounds.
Review: Jonny Faith recently revealed the influence of the Oz sun on his music with acclaimed LP, Sundial. Now he moves on with two new non-album tracks, "Le Sucre" and "Dapple City". The former sees cascading electronic shimmers, gentle loops and light hip-hop beats merge is a blissful haze. The latter see trip-hoppy vibes resurface on this brief chillout interlude. Some album tracks get remixed too: "Dust Settles" becomes a fuzzed-out headnodder in Roleo's hands, Anormie Delirious turns "Zheng" into spacey DnB and Snare Thief goes further into jungle territory on his frenetic rework of "Neon".
Review: Jonny Faith is a Scottish producer, based in Australia, who has won international acclaim from the likes of 6Music's Huey Morgan and Jeremy Sole of KCRW, and now he delivers his debut album, Sundial. Originally a turntablist DJ spinning jungle, reggae and DnB, Faith moved over to the burgeoning future beats hip-hop scene and added his own cosmic twist. This unique sound can be heard all over this LP, where he 'explores the combination of rich, organic and peaceful sounds with hip-hop beats'. Shimmering gentle, organic and lush, this is an album like no other.
