Massive work by Quantic – his third album, and easily the best
one so far! There's a sophistication to the grooves here that we never would have expected in the earlier recordings – a keen love of
a globe's worth of
influence – summed up in the deeply changing mood of
the set, as the music runs from breezy bossa to heavy Afro rhythms, sweet soul jazz, and classic 70s deep funk! The gimmicks are gone, the strings are cut, and the only thing supporting Quantic at this point is his own genius for the groove. Great throughout, and with surprising guest work by funk legend Spanky Wilson, Afro funk singer Sonny Akpan, and fellow Tru Thoughts labelmate Alice Russell – on tracks that include "Mishaps Happening", "Use What You Got", "Angels & Albatrosses", "Prelude To Happening", "Perception
", "So Long", "Furthest Moment", and "Trees & Seas".
