- Edited 3 years agoLike the other reviews, this is one of my favourite releases of 2018: all six tracks are weird, warm, imaginative, and subtly groovy. A vaguely African vibe lurking around the edges of some of them, via little vocal snippets and samples. The first side is more upbeat, the second side more contemplative. Not sure if some of these are edits or all entirely original compositions. "Who Am I" is absolutely beautiful. Nice heavy vinyl too.
- Strong contender for 12" of the year for me. Duckett cover a lot of ground on both sides, with each track being its own unique masterpiece. From blissed out melodies, perfect for hazy, warm-up sessions through to 4am tool tracks to shift minds around. Grab this before they all go!
- Besides having one of the most tripped out covers of my bought vinyls this year, the music presented here by Duckett is equal out there. From instrumental/synthetic led chanting (Magic Headlines Foul The Air) over to marimba-esque slow groover (Millions And Millions Of Palastinions) to spoken clap funk (The Way You Make Me Feel). This is a great ep showing a broad spectrum of a intense creative mind on his machines.
