Hot on the heels of a fine EP for Matthew Herbert's Accidental Jnr imprint, Dave Aju pops up on Circus Company. As usual, the four tracks showcased here are full of imaginative touches and quirky but successful fusions of styles. Opener "Low Dive", for example, sees him lace his fuzzy, soul-flecked vocalizations atop dense, techno-influenced drums and dreamy, stretched-out chords "Always Dive", meanwhile, is a quirky chunk of wonky, bass-heavy broken soul, while "Sides" sees him veer further towards Theo Parrish territory. He successfully dips the tempo on closer "Tell Her Why", serving up a delicious chunk of skewed future soul.
