Since first finding fame as an integral member of the Def Jux crew in the late '90s/early 2000s, Blockhead - AKA NYC-based producer James Simon - has contributed three albums of heavyweight beat science to the vast Ninja Tune catalogue. This fourth full-length for Coldcut's long-running imprint sees him in fine form, offering a typically chunky selection of sample-heavy beatscapes. Musically, it's flexible, overlaying his usual solid beats with elements of folk-rock, grungy indie, jazz, blues, film soundtracks, country, B-music and dreamy pop. The resultant fusions are thoroughly enjoyable, offering a kaleidoscopic mix of pscyh-hop heaviness, hazy trip-hop revivalism and jaunty, floor-friendy rhythms.
