Those who like musically expansive, jazz-funk influenced deep house loveliness should already be aware of Thomas Laroye's slim but impressive catalogue, which includes notable outings on Freerange and Atjazz Record Co. Here the French producer delivers his debut album, an inspired eight-track set that perfectly encapsulates the summery, sun-soaked excellence of his work. Expect soulful songs, broken house beats, kaleidoscopic jazz-funk and boogie synths, mazy instrumental solos and audible references to classic U.S garage and New Jersey house. Highlights include (but are in no way limited to) Javontte hook-up 'Let It Go', the shuffling samba-house flex of 'People Out There', the Kaidi Tatham-esque 'Grateful' and the synth solo-sporting heaviness of 'Get Down (The Moonfunk Dub)'.
