Shed dwelling funkateer Daytoner has been surreptitiously priming us for this monumental third album moment throughout the year with cheeky 45s "Needed You" and "Second Stomp". Now the moment has landed and it's every bit as varied, infectious and feel-good as we hoped it would be. Highlights include the Brand New Heavies style slink new jazz of "Pacific", the Labi-sampling strutter "I Get By", the sweaty stomping northern soul jam "Needed You" and the big swing sing-along "Sicka". And that's not even half of it.... He didn't name it Off The Hook for nothing.
