Last seen laying down some space funk on Space Dimension Controller's newly launched Basic Rhythm label, Italian producer Ad Bourke resurfaces with style via another new label in Scenario - allegedly based in Mongolia. Arriving on a thick slab of green vinyl, the six track Raw Ivy is more substantial than a mere EP yet not quite an album, however it does continues the themes Bourke explored on that BR release, hand picking various stylistic and rhythmic elements and presenting them within his own inimitable palette of sounds. Sitting somewhere between Dam Funk, Floating Points and Mr Beatnick, Raw Ivy is a compelling statement of this obvious talent with the slick analogue aqua boogie of "Guava" a particular highlight.
