Shockingly, this is not only former Clap Your Hands and Freude Am Tanzen artist Laolu's first release for two years, but also a rare solo outing (in the past he's collaborated with Raoul K and Kadebostan). Title track "Force" is particularly strong: an evocative slab of spacey deep house/tech-house/Afro-house vocals featuring his own manipulating vocals, tons of layered hand percussion sounds, and elongated chords that tend towards the poignant and melancholic. "Swango" is equally as impressive, with Laolu wrapping sharp electronic pulses and lilting lead lines around a Raoul K-style Afro-tech beat, woozy bass and dreamy chords.
