Teebs' debut drops sweet and heavy on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label, following the excellent Lorn album with a more lushed-out and hazy experience.

Artist: Teebs

Genre: Electronica

Label: Brainfeeder

Release date:

As his recent single and A-side for All City's LA series proved, this man's got his own distinct style of MPC chops, generally less frantic than Flylo's and cleaner than Ras G's, defined by smooth, cushioned surfaces and the warm glow of his synthesizer textures. However he does share their attention span, giving eighteen finely sculpted vignettes from the most liminal, dreamy headspace, mostly hovering around the three minute mark. The previous single featured three of the album's best tracks, the sparkling centre-piece 'Arthur's Birds', the tingle and bump of 'Bern Rhythm', and the melancholy ''Why Like This?', but the goodness certainly doesn't stop there... 'While You Doooo' shakes out a sun-crisped Bossa Nova syncopation with shimmering harps and the sublime 'Wind Loop' could almost be a hazy adjunct to the Tri Angle sound of Balam Acab and co. His drowsy compressions on 'Felt Tip' provide one of the most blissed out and dreamy states, and the Carlos Nino comparisons come full circle in his gorgeous collab with Gaby Hernandez on 'Long Distance'. The combination of meditative calm and richness of the production elevate this album well above the crowd and mean it should make a lasting impression.
