Booka Shade hits the decks again for THE SUN & THE NEON LIGHT, which seems them continue their select blend of techno, house and everything in between. The electro bleeps of "Outskirts" are grounded by the swelling strings, while "Duke" is spare and dark, but not quite minimal. "Dusty Boots" and "Comacabana" let in a little twangy country riffs, and "Control Me" dives into synth-pop. But it's not until "Charlotte" that the album really kicks off in all its playful glory; the smooth and quasi-romantic "Numbers" soon follows. The title track wanders in and out of Detroit, going from cool industrialism to warmth techno, but as "Sweet Lies" comes in, we can hear how Booka Shade wishes to juxtapose the two. Electro returns for "Karma Car," and there's a little bit of stomp in "Psychameleon," and an almost alarming wiggle to "Planetary." But "You Don't Know What You Mean To Me" caps the album on a soft note. But if you're in a dancing mood, head on over to the 2nd disc, where the beats are plentiful.
