Longstanding Detroit deep house veteran Big Daddy Rick returns with three timeless reminders of his relevancy and resonance. "Escapism" is one of those classic ebb and flow tracks that laps gently but powerfully with mournful chords and slight air of cinematica while "Stand Alone" carries all the hallmarks of Rick's hometown with its rippled detuned chords and robust stately drum arrangement. "Understand" plays the consummate finale with its shuffled broken beats and dreamy 50s movie flourishes. Understated.
