This album came highly recommended to me via a music friend/producer/fellow crate-digger. He said it was his favourite record of 2016, which says a lot. Upon first listen, I thought it was a solid record. But after listening to it months later – I was hooked! There's something hypnotic about this record (safe to say it's the percussion). I was able to buy a copy off Ninja Tune's label site as the artist's Bandcamp was all sold out. So happy to own this on wax! The standout is easily 'Paradise Valley', but my personal favourite is 'Squeaky Maya' for it's sublime re-work of Soul II Soul's 'Back to Life (However Do You Want Me)', which has a lot of nostalgia as it's featured in the Belly OST, and probably the reason he sampled it in the first place. Check out this Detroiter's Boiler Room while you're at it.

One of those albums that will be played in many years to come and still sound fresh, so many highlights.

Just copped for $15 brand spanking new this past weekend at Trinosophes in Eastern Market (Detroit baby!) They said Jay had personally brought copies to sell! They have a few more at a great rate so if you're in town then buy local! So proud of this next generation of Detroit artists. This is my funky entry point into the deep house world. Also Boolin' is like, so nasty.

Does anybody else have a problem with the labels being heavily off centre on record 1? The labels on both sides A & B are so out of alignment that they render the last track on both sides unplayable as they partly cover the grooves.
