Freak 'n Chic begin their 2009 album assault with much-hyped Anthony Collins and his debut long-player, Doubts & Shouts. Collins has developed a formidable reputation through his old school/new school take on house music, and his releases on Get Physical, Liebe*Detail, Bang Bang, Cecille, Curle, Vakant and Freak n'Chic have seen support from just about every jock worth their salt. Doubts & Shouts looks set to further that reputation with 10 new tracks which manage to sum up Collins' dancefloor credentials while equally appealing to a home-listening environment. The Paris-based producer has a style balanced between U.S. percussive, almost Afrobeat grooves and traditionally European production techniques and melodies which perhaps betrays his upbringing in both New York and the South of France. Either way, a strong theme runs throughout Doubts & Shouts in the form of a combination of unfaltering grooves, atmosphere and frankly astonishing mode production techniques which manage to stand out yet remain subtle at the same time. Whether it be the more laidback tracks like "Fragile" or "Blossom," or the unmistakable dancefloor burners such as "Mist" or "Mondays," this strong theme draws the album together as a whole and makes it sound complete. Some outstanding keyboard work really shines on Doubts & Shouts too, which further displays the sort of prodigious talent this young producer has beyond simple dancefloor workouts.
