"Such a dark tune, really hit me first time I heard it."
Wow, this just tears me apart. Superb, stunning rhymes pitched perfectly between intensity and nonchalant abstraction from Confucious, amazing droney production from Keor Meteor. 'Original' is just one of the many highlights from Conf's debut album 'The Highest Order' that isn't just one of the greatest things YNR have ever given us (and they've given us alot of great great things), but one of the UK musical debuts of the year full stop. Get this, get on the album and drink deep from this man's wily mysticism. Future star.
As far as I’m concerned the attention shy Maghreban is three for three. He’s put out three records on Zoot and each one’s done something for me. This third one’s devoted to Star Trek and the Vulcan mating ritual, which he describes as "often brutal" — a phrase that is probably the optimum tag line for the A-side, ‘Amok Time', which totes the kind of churning low-end that would’ve sweetened up Plastic’s 2009-era soundsystem just perfect.
"This tune sounds so heavy on a system, it's one I get excited to play."
