Review

It's arrived! We're proud to announce the seventh studio album HA! by British beatmaker Jon Kennedy via his always impressive eponymous imprint. The smoky "Twilight" gets the LP off to a fine start, with some dope Jazzmatazz styled vibes happening. Kennedy then delves deeper (and darker) into the night on killer jams like "Burn Me", a live junglist stepper, balanced out by 'liquid' elements reminiscent of LTJ Bukem. Similarly, "Iron Lung" is undeniably a tribute of sorts to his former stomping ground: Bristol. Here he goes for a modern reinterpretation of drum and bass via deep dubstep: this one will get those lighters in the air, for sure! Elsewhere, he proves that he doesn't only appeal to the new generation; as the smooth and sultry nu-jazz of "Slave To The TV" proves. We must also mention the collaborations: Birmingham songstress Deirdre Gaddis lends her smooth as silk vocals to the exotic/psychedelically blunted groove of "More Things Change" while the straight talking Preacherman waxes lyrical on the state of things over the block rockin' beats of "Heaven". A fine selection of late night tales courtesy of Kennedy & Co. that will enrapture you from start to finish.
