A timely rush of soulful emotion drives the opening number forward with due care and attention given to the words. 4 The Lovers, sounds temptingly delicious with undulating funky beats and bass underpinning the cascading piano notes, all which it has to be said sounds rather beautiful. By way of contrast robust, brutal drums then accompany the more intense tones generated by Where My Girls At, while the deeper sounds of Blomst complete the picture care of more heart – crushing rhythms that feel jazzy, probing and rewarding all in one easy lesson. If you lay hands on the vinyl edition then you’re treated to the bonus of Soulsista which again sees sizzling arrangements of soul plus funk across strident House beats.
