Alex Coulton marks the third Mancunian to step up to the Idle Hands platter. "Candy Flip" gets things off to a storming start, wrapping a tight beat up in impeccable sound design, but when the bassline drops, you know you're hearing a very special slice of hybrid dance music. There's no drop in quality on "Brooklyn" either, which starts off on a false pretence of bluesy keys and steady beat, before another one of those killer b-lines comes creeping in. Proof if it were needed that there's no need to revisit past styles when such fresh, uncomplicated ideas are being generated in the here and now.
