Broken beat as only Laws of Motion can deliver it: Maddslinky gets down with his debut, MAKE YOUR PEACE. "The Story," for example, sets the soul vocals against some its solid beats. There's a general spareness to tracks like “Future Chicano” and “Reasons” as opposed to the jazzy layers that one normally expects from broken beat -- it's both a strength and a weakness, lending itself both to crispness and emptiness. But the fuller tracks, such as "Mare D'Inverno," work just as well, if not better. “Flute Salad” starts off dark, but quickly moves into funk mode, while “Desert Fog” maintains its slightly mysterious vibe throughout. “Sentience” gets rumbly and sci-fi, but the title track returns everything back to the jazzy goodness that we know. If there's a weakness, it's the occasional weak vocal, such as the rap on "Doing My Thing." But, as the title suggests, I’ve made my peace with it.
