Back in stock! Paolo Kapunan aka P-Love follows Mike Schof aka Elektro4 as one of the initial artists to drop their solo debut full lengths for the label of the year 2005, Bully. Round these parts our breath has been triple def baited in anticipation for this album to drop and it does not disappoint. Primarily known for his quirky and refreshing deejay skills, he is good mates with Kid Koala, this album shows that he’s also the master of the sampler plus add to that trumpet, stylophone, guitar, drums and keyboards. This album really sounds like no other that I can recall, it has the fun factor you’d associate with Eric San plus the depth of Sixtoo’s ‘Duration’. Twelve tracks in 50 minutes really fly by (the limited vinyl version omits ‘Palisades’, find that if you can on FU014) there are no obvious stand out tracks as every track is awesome – some to mention are ‘St-Viateur Shuffle (Part 2)’ a sick midtempo breakbeat bomb, with downward spiraling melancholic horns, warm alien blips and some awesome beat cut up’s, as dope as Mat Young’s ‘Illy Uno’. ‘Four Inches Per Minutes on The DVP’ has P-Love on live drums showing Illy B’s influence has rubbed off on him – a mega chilled guitar, rhodes, turntable stroll perfect for those end of day moments when you finally switch off the head and let the good times flow. How good is ‘Lâches Pas Les Études Gertrude’? this album just keeps it going on, ‘Rockland County Dramatics Andante’ is like the gorgeous interludes in ‘Nufonia Must Fall’ only even lusher, the ‘…. Allegro’ version’, jaw drops to the floor. I can’t recommend this album highly enough. Style wise and content wise it might be miles apart from the Alpha Puppies Ricci Rucker and Mike Boo but it’s no less a deejay essential. one you’ll be returning to time and time again, treat yourself.
