This is the second release on Statler & Waldorf by Denmark's Mikkel Meyer. Since his debut, Meyer has moved from introverted jazzy electronica over spoken-word, to hard upfront dubstep. This is a solid meal, where freshness has beaten the jazzy flavors characterizing his previous work. The working method has become faster, and you can feel that time has been reduced dramatically from when the ingredient leaves the chopping board to when the dishes are served. Mikkel Meyer has put together a 9-course menu with inspiration from his grandmother's cookbooks, dating 40 years back to a time when you had to see a pharmacist to buy anything else than the three Danish standard spices: salt, pepper and bacon. With immigration in the '70s came exotic foods and spices, and Danish cuisine was never the same. In much the same way, Meyers' music has been spiced up with contributions from the USA and Tanzania. He has, so to speak, brought the world to his Danish melting pot, by inviting some of the greatest in the field to flavor this album: American Non from Shadowhuntaz in Chicago, who has been awarded numerous stars in the world's guidebook, and Lufu and Chidi Benz from Tanzania, who both deliver Swahilian herbs to the table. This is home-ccoked Danish dub, with a heavy dollop of thick techno, and sprinkled with grime and grit.
