"Look to the skies: [a]pendics.shuffle's Helicopter Hearts are about to land on a dancefloor near you. Ha ha ha! Kenneth James Gibson, as he refers to himself, has prepared a fantastic 8 tracker and submitted it to Orac HQ for immediate release. Vigorous dance anthems are dominating the playlist as [a]pendics.shuffle joins his Orac comrades in exploring the power of 4 on the floor. This album is about songs that you can dance to. Songs with words and songs without words, and songs in between. After side A sets the tone with two motivating yet mysterious numbers, the deep blue night of echo park falls with 'Baneful Lather' on side B, a dark stomper for the dark discos of L.A. Next comes 'Saw Saw Soup' which has already found its way up the charts; this reworked version features a happier Michael J. And a slightly mellower [a]pendics.shuffle. The noddy 'Dirty Hood' is another diabolical number, straight-up vocal funk strengthened by thoroughly modern-sounding stabs and slowly building percolating drum patterns. The rest of sides C and D find our Mr. Gibson getting deep into the instrumentals, juggling horns, radio receivers and his signature [a].funkadelics, finding farben-like jazz record loops, indulging in high drama which for all its sonic explorations never fails to return to the dance floor."
