Argentine producer Thomass Jackson has previously impressed with his warm, rubbery, tactile blends of disco, electrofunk, deep house and nu-disco. Following acclaimed outings on Electrique Music and Legendary Sound Research, he pops up on Play Pal with a varied quartet of likeable cuts. Opener "You Better Hold Me" is starry and evocative, lacing tasteful electric pianos and sweet jazz guitars over a particularly rubbery synth bassline. "The Affair" delivers a dose of chugging, cut-up '80s soul with a P-funk twist, while "Percolator" sounds like Spirictcatcher after a night with Roger Troutman. Finally, "Social Assassin" delves deeper into alternative territory, coming on like some long lost Factory Records B-side circa 1986.
