    After a long absence, Freeform returns to Skam with HUMAN, a rather ironic title, since much of this album veers towards the distinctly inhuman. "Big Top," despite its squiggles and carnivalesque melody, still carries a thick beat thumping through. "Crumble," meanwhile, has some rather interesting rhythm programming going on to accompany the music box-like tune emerging halfway through. The title track thrums with a cheeky insouciance, while "Nylon" has what sounds like throat singers adding a long drone to the beats. "Mango" also has some vocals, though taken through a blender, while "You Should Get Out More" keeps the vocals more intact, though subsumed beneath a dirge of woodwinds, and "Ticataca" has a tiny scat vocal beneath the woodblocks for an oddly perky track. The lo-fi clatter of "Rattle" adds a rougher edge, putting a different gloss to what's a fun, varied album.

      There's some very inventive rhythm work on this and all of simon pyke's work. It's quite difficult to define. At times there's a tribal feel to this record as well as the hip hop feel mentioned above. Title track on this album is probably my favorite. At first i hated the whole record because i didn't really get it but now it's really grown on me as with many of his releases.

        I haven’t heard anything like this album before and I think that’s exactly how Simon Pyke wanted it. I want to say this has a Hip-Hop influence like many other SKAM releases but that would be an extremely vague description for this album. Once again SKAM pushes its music to the limits with something as inhuman as Freeform’s Human.
