This is a great album. Mellow, jazzy, sample-heavy deep house music. If you liked Kira Neris then you'd probably enjoy this. 10/10

W.L.Y.B Super deep house atmosphere <3


August 6, 2017

From start to finish, this is a special and meticulously orchestrated project. Here, the type of deep house that we’ve come to expect from Mr Guy is combined with gorgeous, mellow, almost ambient tracks to satisfy on so many levels. ‘Intro’ starts off with just that, not a kick in sight but keys and chords to die for. ‘Gone’ has some delicious bongos providing the first beat of the LP, and a very laid back acid feel is laid over the top with soft synths. ‘Wichita Falls’ is reminiscent of previous project ‘Hutch’ and a low moody bassline lays the foundations for some horns and dancing symbols. ‘Claudi’ is a crackle-and-hiss slow-burner without a kick and uses some plucky strings to build the mood further still.

Back to the bongos for ‘Anchor’ which brings in low-pass filtered keys gently until it feels like there’s a pixie dancing on a piano. A jazzy sax takes over and casts us into the smoky backroom of a jazz bar you’ve never heard of. ‘Saw You For The First Time’ is very special and you can tell extra care has been taken with the flagship track here. Harp strings bring us in and a carefully selected vocal sample accompanies a firm kick which casts our memories back to some of LG’s older releases, combined with perhaps a hint of ‘Midnight in Peckham’ by the Chaos in the CBD brothers.

‘Stray’ is an up-tempo jammer with a pretty chord pattern, while ‘Drum is a Woman’ is probably the most emotive number on the LP. Drawing heavily on blues influence here, Steve Spacek contributes wonderfully to put the cherry on top of Mr Guy’s signature low slung bass notes. ‘Orchard Road’ feels like goodbye and is a gentle synthy, beat-less number. We are left, finally, with a familiar project in the shape of ‘W.L.Y.B’ which we remember from a few years ago. The moody, Moomin-esque feel to this track may even have drawn us towards LG in the first place, and the flying hi-hats don’t lose their dramatic effect second time around.

Perfect for: There is more than one gem on this LP that could be used to entertain a floor, but we would recommend you sit back, kick your feet up, wrap up warm and let this one play from start to finish.
