Four multi-purpose, innovative tracks from the Assemble Music family. Mike Shannon takes the pace right down on ‘Pimp Limp’ to stunning effect, weaving together tweaked pads and a deep, tripping bass with the tightest of drum sounds, developing an irresistible, effortless groove. Aloe Varu (aka Dan Andrei) takes the shuffle up a notch on ‘Shifty’, evoking classic Herbert with cut-up jazz samples and bumping, stop-start percussion. Nicola Kazimir nods to another master, Jan Jelinek aka Farben, on ‘Reductive Ford’, channeling the latter’s contemplative, intricate and emotive programming. Finally Voigtmann’s ‘Muff Shuffler’ does, well, exactly that, shuffling along with a minimal vibe enhanced with fine atmospherics.
