Wow...where do I begin? This album is absolutely brilliant - every cut! Top work here from the Karminsky Experience...timeless sounds, beautifully produced & presented. Ladies & gentlemen, they're back!!!
The receiver crackled to life once more, the signal bounced from distant satellites and filtered through the upper reaches of the stratosphere. A voice, barely recognisable, the message cryptic, and in the background - a poolside, or else, birdsong? Inconclusive, in the wake of a cocktail that tasted, said the second go-go dancer, 'Kinda funny', before melting into the hot midnight crowd, an abstract composition of sound and colour, drums and motion. And now the journey from stage door to receding yellow cab became epic in both scope and scale, cacti or maybe fire hydrants swerving recklessly across his path. Images collided, spinning fragments of a story he couldn't quite remember, or never really knew. The Beat Hotel, the school of abstract music, and Stanley Terrace, 'musician', 32, who knew so much and told so little - that at least was clear. And in his hand the receiver, unheard - "You were right all along, we found them, we found them all!"

Remembrance - wow... each part. Utterly, utterly perfect. Inspiring drums...
Strings Of Light pulls you in from the start, letting you know you're in for a great trip.
Joint 17 is another great track, smooth and funky and exploring around the edges of the groove.
Black Focus is a great opener and Yo Chavez is really nice.
Lowrider... mmm, the theme is bit retro for me, which is fitting - and brilliant playing, of course.
Favourite track: Remembrance Peter Jones
