Todd Osborn returns to Spectral Sound in his Osborne guise with his first release on the label since 2013's Hold Up (feat. Joe Goddard). Fools finds Osborn in his best self, as a shapeshifter bringing together strands of various genres. The title track is a lesson in house reduction, while "Different" is a chunk of bassline-led techno. On the B-side, "Back Whenever" kicks off in proto-IDM electro form, all melody and light, and "Integrate" slows it down to a walking pace for a dash of synth funk.
Now, another example that Music with capital letters was created in Africa. I can't thank Kenny Dixon Jr enough for another outstanding piece of art rooted in the deepest and most ancient of expressions. What a reinterpretation of funk and disco! alexlaragarcia
