With a career spanning 20 years, French maestro beatsmith Guts is back, this time working alongside the artist Mambo for the Freedom art and music project. Guts is known for his genius use of old vinyl samples, hip hop beats, spoken word and instrumental mix ups, and as this album is entirely mastered in analogue, it’s pure old school sensibility and seriously cool.

Heard from one angle, Woon is the sort of singer-songwriter that record companies love to turn into James Morrison. His mother was a session singer; Woon went to the Brit school. His voice is soulful; there’s Youtube footage of Woon in years past, playing guitar quite conventionally. If it didn’t start with the sound of a carbonated drink being poured into a glass, or bump along on little shards of digital ice, “Middle” could be a perfectly middling soul-pop hit. “I can’t get enough of your love,” Woon purrs smoothly, sweeping up a listenership who find his fellow-traveller James Blake too austere.

Lems – A, B, C!!

I couldn’t find any reviews for this album, so I’ll do my best. This album features pretty supreme samples, excellent jazz beats and sways, a few hip-hop guest artists, and a lot of feel-good. Some of the backbeat approaches a glitchy, electronic swing, similar to Parov Stelar or Caravan Palace.
