Lo Tide Amazing piece of work, so many deep tracks to select from. Ranging from spacey beats through to drift away vocals, loving it all here. Left me waiting for more given how good it all was. Favorite track: Means To An End.

about

One of our favorite producers, Wes Jones, has put his nose to the grindstone and once again churned out an album of undiluted abstract downtempo heavy-beats goodness, and we are all better off for it. Many of you may remember 2005's "The Lost Art" LP that we released, and you probably remember how crisp, evocative, and downright GOOD that album was.

Well, this new album is a progression, a maturation, and a crystallization of where the man's head is at now. There are heavy boom-bap workouts, like the flute-sample driven "Reinvention”, or the jazzy chop-shop headbobber "Malthusian Distress Signals", or even the bit-depth crunch and dramatic elevation of "The Infinite", with it's undulating synth bass and sinewy guitar strummage, which gives way to placid piano chords. There are those songs that just drip with his signature downtempo mellow vibe production, like "Hidden Truths" with it's solid foot-shaking groove, and the beautiful and lilting majesty of "Closure" (which there is also a video for, keep a look out for that!).

There are also some vocal tracks this time around, like the album's centerpiece "Means To An End" where Mr. Jones lets his own voice take over the wispy, forlorn atmosphere of the track with thought provoking lyrics and perfect harmony embellishments. Also featured on the track "Unraveling" is Alexis Hamlin-Vogler, whose beautiful and delicate voice slides in and out of this prime slice of Sade-esque soul mastery.

We all know it wouldn't be a Wes Jones album without some more experimental numbers in there too, and he doesn't disappoint this go around with “Phantasmagorical Theme", as sci-fi horror flick ambience exists firmly intact around the track's heavy plodding drum-n-bass meets hip-hop appeal.

The digital release has bonus tracks from Wes which are sure to delight, as well as a jaw-dropping dope remix of main track "Means To An End" by our own Mr. Bambu, who turns the once slow and meditative piece into an serious uprock boogie stormer with an electro edge to it.

A very complete album, and one hell of a listening experience. Enjoy!
