Having been one of the true innovators of the broken beat scene, IG Culture has been virtually silent in recent times. This fourth solo album, his first for four years, confirms that he's lost none of his immense production skills and musical nous. Featuring a dizzying array of collaborators and a musical palette that veers from woozy hip-hop and twinkling neo-soul, to booming revivalist Detroit electro and straight-up jazz, it's arguably his strongest full-length to date. As usual, the beats swing, the chords are soulful and the production is immaculate. If you thought his time had passed, you were wrong. Seriously, Soulful Shanghai is superb.
