MIXMAG ALBUM OF THE MONTH.
Old-skool soul food.
One of the shining lights of the noughties’ liquid-funk boom, Luke Wilson’s much-envied library of rare soul samples continues to earn him legions of international fans and a unique perch in the d’n’b galaxy. True to his defiantly old-skool production ethic, album number three is awash with the dusky sax trills, lilting piano rolls and shuffling breaks that have become his smile-inducing signature – a trove of unvarnished rollers entirely devoid of mechanoid modern gloss or studio gimmicks. You’ll also find sassy reggae-flecked funk (‘The Warning’ feat. David Boomah) and loping 150bpm breakbeat grooves (‘Infinity’), but it’s the tear-jerking brilliance of mournful piano gems like ‘Loops for Days’ that do it for us. Get those jazz-hands ready, people – summer has officially arrived.
