Uncanny Valley's resident beatsmith Cuthead delves even further into his love of low slung grooves with this fulsome album of soulful vignettes that make the perfect hip hop paced partner to the more housey output known on the label. It's not all slow-mo business as "Maputo Jam" attests with its peppy chops and swinging New Jersey funk, and in terms of sample-rich house loaded with imagination it's hard to picture anything sounding quite as heartfelt and captivating as this, but in the slower musings Cuthead shows off his breadth as a producer and comes up smelling of particularly addictive roses. Try listening to the title track and not feeling an immense sense of satisfaction, romance and groove all in one.
