Seventh full-length under his own name , 'Bizarster' is no empty eulogy, it's a hall of mirrors
with a happy bounce, re-tooled with skill, and always with a sense of fun. It's these things that
make the hip-hop speed bleep 'n' bass of opener 'Knockout' seems completely natural, or
'Officer's Club' with it's funky disco samples, reggae vocals and joyous synths sounding like
the kind of delirious idea no one else could come up with. A track like 'I Can Phil It' is a piece
of sampladelic hip hop with a punning title, but that's not to say he can't play it serious.
'Manalog' for instance, which is sharp spiralling low-slung synth funk, a gloriously deep track,
while something like 'L-Tronic' is top draw spaced-out electro. The title track's cut and paste space-age samples remind one of his
Jean-Jacques Perrey collaboration and 'War' is the type of groovy instrumental hip-hop reminiscent of DJ Shadow at his
peak. The album finishes on the fun-filled vortex of 'Don't Fuck Around', a cut-up jungle masterpiece with heart in throat chords.
Enjoy the ride.
