This guy was incredible. His Seven Up EP is sheer timeless brilliance - tracks like 'Deep Six' are reminiscient of 70s soul for some reason, and they indeed take you back in time to other places. Same with 'Say Seven Up' - has horn instrumentation and leaves you somewhere in a deep soulful place several decades ago. It's moving music. And conversely, he's able to make serious lounge music, uptempo leftfield, and a whole range of styles that you've never really heard before. His previous Rephlex outing "You Can't Help But Liking.." is full of zany cuts and many of them are pseudo porn-lounge tracks, sampling moaning females and according playful drum kits and synths. You will never be bored with a PP Roy release, I recommend to buy on sight! I happen to have a recording of him at the Golden Pudel in 2000 or 2001, it's absolutely bonkers. Exciting music and refreshing to hear, never wears out. This is why Rephlex was Rephlex, because of the ingenuity of the artist roster. Rumor is he is the one who rediscovered Black Devil, finding his old Disco Club record at a car boot or garage sale, and bringing it to Replhex who took on relicensing it and remixing, etc. It effectively relauched Fevre's career, and got a whole lot more disco material from more of a sound-design type lad, releasing library music in the 70s. True or not, in any case, 'Roys music echoes through time and I only wished he would have released more. This artist is something else entirely....mad brilliance and tapped in. Seek him out.
