"Brilliant Debut album of Mocky. Crazy funked up tracks from his crazy mind. Mocky has a long history as a musician (used to play in a band with his friends Peaches and Gonzales, was bassplayer for Talvin Singh and released music on his own label which he sold from his carbooth back in Canada during his study at the Boston's famed Berklee Jazz College where he would study acoustic bass by day and produce hip-hop by night.) Now he finally releases his debut album after great response which he did get on various releases (which has been played by people such as Gilles Peterson and Jazzanova). His music his hard to describe but best to put it between labels such as Kitty yo, Cheap, Ninja Tunes, Warp etc). The CD includes many of Mocky's classic underground tracks including, Soul Control, and Me-So-Funky but mostly fresh unreleased material specially produced for this album (which contains 14 songs). It also Includes the manifesto style Heavy Shit that features his good pals Peaches and Gonzales. You can expect the agenda of Sun Ra combined with a strangely pop naivete. Gangsta-chic MC-ing and Chet Baker style crooning are also thrown into the mix. Muzik magazine described his last release as 'a combination of Money Mark and Squarepusher' and you can easily add Jimi Tenor and many others to his unique blend of styles."
