Moon B

Lifeworld

About this item

After lighting up our lives with the superb Barthel, Bohm & Bauer retrospective last time round, Basso hooks the tape deck up to the Growing Bin lathe and delivers a vinyl edition of Moon B's "Lifeworld", previously only available on cassette via Vancouver's 1080p. Where the Atlanta producer's previous releases on PPU delivered the saturated boogie and grainy house synonymous with the label, strolling casually in step with Mood Hut or the more stoned end of the Beautiful Swimmers catalogue, "Lifeworld" sees Wes Gray don a safari suit for an exploration of the tropical undergrowth. Operating in much the same way as a hip hop mixtape, the LP sees the producer cycle through a well segued selection of sketches, motifs and moods, exploring tranquilised g-funk, subcontinental film themes and tropical interludes without letting any track outstay its welcome. The result is an intoxicating listening experience which pulls you into its distinct universe from start to finish, while sounding like a slightly heat-warped tape discovered on a Jamaican beach. Joining the dots between the psychedelia of Baldelli's cosmic scene and the dranked out slank of his hometown's chopped & screwed scene, Moon B's delivered one of the freshest albums of recent memory, typified by the horizontal oddness of bonus cut "Moments In Slank". Clear a space next to your turntable because you'll have this one on heavy rotation.
