Review

As with most, if not all Golf Channel releases, the dedication to presentation on finished copies means you can't ever feel too bad about missing out on the clutch of white labels the New York labels sends out in advance of release. That's certainly the case with the Downtown Nubian EP from Mind Fair, with some wonderfully psychedelic music to match the abstract art. Mind Fair is of course the collaboration between MEB's Ben Shenton and sometime Chicken Lipper Dean Meredith - we need an excel formula made to keep up with the latter's various projects - and after numerous 12"s on Rogue Cat and International Feel, the Downtown Nubian EP represents their finest work together to date. The wonderful "So Strong" is perhaps one of the finest contemporary disco cuts in recent memory thanks to the usage of vintage synths, live instrumentation and the sort of dynamic arrangements that few newcomers have a grasp of. That vocal sample is amazing too. A smorgasbord of sounds follow with the avant-garde primitive electronics of "Bloody Mary" acting as a weirded out interlude before the sumptuous jazz funk of the title track and the proto electronics of "Wrong Wire".
