Dan Shake is the first artist outside of Detroit to cut his teeth on Moodymann's Mahogani Music, winning international plaudits for his groove-laden 3AM Jazz Club EP (2014). The Tony Allen and Fela Kuti acolyte returns with two crunchy, Dilla-esque takes on soulful club music. "Out of Sight" is a carefully constructed dancefloor number packed with low-end theory and seductive vocal stabs. Low-slung fuzzy bass swinging perfectly between ghost-horns and driving drums. "Traders II," a collaboration with Canada-based Rennie Foster, features driving kicks smashing acid atoms against a sharp live horn section, bringing the ethereal jazz cat to the dance.
