Since 2013, D-Ribeiro has delivered a range of chunky, undeniably fuzzy blends of techno and deep house for labels such as Midlight, SD and Finale Sessions. Here, the Rotterdam producer makes his debut on Gerd's 4 Lux Black imprint. There's a glitchy, hissing, bass-heavy feel throughout, with Ribeiro showcasing his love of dancefloor-friendly loop-funk, modern soul samples and woozy chords. While the standard remains high throughout, there are notable highlights. Opener "What's Up Girl", built around chopped-and-looped R&B vocal samples, starry electronics and an undeniably bumpy groove, is particularly strong, while the similarly soulful, wayward boogie-house thumper "Donut Breakin" sounds like it would cause commotion on the right dancefloors.
