Review: Shogun wunderkind Joe Ford finally delivers his debut album in the form of Colours In Sound and it's a daring document by any stretch of the imagination. Slamming himself into the centre of a much wider D&B map than some assume he's known for, the opus stretches from springy bass riff elastic on the opener "Where Is The Sun" right through the grunting glitch finale "Enemy". In between we're treated to thundering vocal drama on "Out Of Place", sci-fi soul on "Said", dreamy Huntemann-style techno on "Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants" and savage headbanger wizardry on "Adrenaline" with Hacktivist... With plenty more loaded and coded in between, this is a remarkable piece of work from the highly respected next-gen artist.
Review: Three Fokuz originals take their places for a sunkissed journey through the skies. Without any more cheesy plays on words, title track "Cloud Surfing" lines itself up to bring one of the Reeces of the year. Add to that stunningly light harmonies and vocals, and it's a beautiful feel good track. The rest of the EP follows suit with a host of gorgeous tunes made for serious chill sessions. "Hardest Thing" brings in some harder drums, "The One That Got Away" gets melancholy and a little edgier with electro pads and finally "Morning Sun" steps it up for a lighthearted leap through sunnier times. Gorgeous stuff.
