There's a reason Randall hangs out with Jaybee when he's Stateside... He knows how to roll the ish out. Classically trained with his own sense of ruthless dark funk, every tune has consistently slapped and this Elm Imprint EP is no exception. "Dark Nine Seven" is straight out of the book of Blue Note while "Definition Of A Roller" lives up to its name while nodding respectfully at the likes of Spirit and Digital in the process. "Ain't It Something" jumps with a jazzy twist to the drums and an old school nod with the timestretched MC sample. Two collabos close the show.Calculon gets mucky on the tripped out halftime dub stomper "Bottlecap Riddim" while longstanding collaborator Dave Owen brings DLo into the fold for some straight up space age funk. Authentic.
