Review

Renowned crate-digger-turned-producer Chris Read has been part of the Breakin' Bread family for many years, having dropped his first 7" for the acclaimed break-diggin' imprint back in 2011. Here he delivers his debut album, a mix of previously released singles, alternate versions and previously unheard material. Immaculately produced and bristling with goodtime grooves, it effortlessly flits between hip-hop-funk (the superb "Rap Tradition"), bumpin' Latin beats (the excellent "Disco Cumbia"), percussive African grooves (the excellent "Sons D'Afrique" and "Dub Afrique"), dancefloor dub ("Dub Forward (Refix)") and rasping Hammond funk ("The Magic Is Gone"). With an all-star cast providing guest spots, Small Steps is a rabble-rousing and thoroughly enjoyable debut.
