DJ Justin Robertson’s Lionrock, which in the past have explored the sparse and moody parts of the dance floor and the uncharted waters of vocal techno, have fully loosened up and created one of the most friendly releases so far this year. The electrofied funk of ‘Push button Cocktail’ is like a warm-up exercise for the ska infused skank and strut ‘Rude Boy Rock’ and it’s alterntate chant of ‘here we go again’, and ‘people, wake up.’ The beat shifts dramatically on every track, and the samples are all fresh and moving in tangental directions from one another. Every third or fourth track, some spoken rap lyrics fill in the human element of the preceedings. The conscious raising is strictly on the order of keeping cool, in these psychicly challenging times. The last track ‘Amazing New Product’, and its waves of buzzing sine waves and boppy, hand clap beat is the frosting on the cake. ‘Overdue or overdone, before we can crawl we try to run, that’s not all we try to reach, before we learn, we try to teach. The machine is up and running, assemble pieces of the new kid craze.’ Tiny little samples from other planet reprogram the subconscious in 2 second intervals between the bobs of your head.
