After releasing a wealth of EPs since making his debut in 2020, Malik Kassim is ready to unleash his first album, 'Straight Foxin', for the constantly inspiring Wolf Music Reordings. Framed as a kind of mixtape, with head-nodding interludes sitting side by side with club cuts, the 14-track set features a wealth of appearances from horn player Mauricesax, as well as collaborations with Bezzix (see the deep dancefloor jazz of 'Be Someone' and the organic deep jazz house of 'New Cribs'), Passion Deez (the skittish, uptempo deep house-goes-ghetto house warmth of 'Kush Love') and 'Nephews' (the deep, Bukem-influenced D&B flex of 'Bad Knees'). Throughout, Kassim offers a near perfect blend of dusty instrumental hip-hop, nu-jazz and the deepest and warmest of house grooves. Recommended!
