Higginbottom (it truly is!), a British producer creating dance music
of the electronic variety. 'Trouble' is his debut solo outing and I
have found much to enjoy in it. It's an upbeat affair of lively tunes
and frisky beats which lends itself admirably to energetic physical
self-expression. Mr Higginbottom's voice rides fairly high on the
stave and although not the most sturdy instrument on the planet his
way with well-constructed ethereal melodies lends his work a nicely
dreamlike quality (for "dreamlike" don't read chillwave or shoe-gazey;
we've all had quite enough of that now haven't we!) The synths bloop and blip
and shimmer and his robust sense of rhythm propels these fourteen tracks
along with considerable verve and variety. If we were having any kind
of a real summer (will the rain ever stop falling!) the album would fit
well into its soundtrack. It's a top down/foot down, sun and sangria affair.
Standout tracks would have to include the deliciously funky 'Your Love'
with its happy-housey vocal decorations; the fidgety toyshop-tribal
percussive inventions of 'Panpipes'; 'American Dream Part II', a cleverly-
structured beat-fest of four-to-the-floor dark sonic matter and
penultimate number 'Fair', which, following a mild and misty introduction
finds its feet and delivers a satisfyingly engaging kick to the nether-regions.
'Trouble' is a small ray of light bent on breaking through the gathering gloom.
Happily this is an album that completely exceeds expectations. The depth and detail encourages repeat listening and through a set of headphones or a decent sound system you find yourself picking out interwoven samples and sounds that previously went unnoticed. Driving beats and basslines and crackling electro mingle with twinkling samples and OH's own haunting vocals to compulsive effect. The tone shifts, part times uplifting and urgent, occasionally playful, then moving to more sombre and reflective territory, with some tracks possessing a haunting and lonely quality. Everywhere there is atmosphere and depth that is completely arresting. Whatever the tone of the track, it is hard not to inadvertently start tapping your foot or nodding your head when giving it even a casual listen. The whole thing just oozes quality and can be listened to end to end without skipping a track.
Trouble manages to pull off that rare trick of binding the component parts together with a common feel, whilst still allowing the individual tracks their own identity. 'Your Love' and 'Stronger' have a definite Old Skool vibe with samples and structures that feel distinctly 90s dance inspired. The anthemic `Tapes and Money' and `Household Goods' meanwhile will please house aficionados with their main stage sound and big drops.Read more ›
Similar vein to Friendly Fires (Pala) and Cut Copy. Definitely my album of summer 2012 so far!
Will do well in Ibiza and the Festivals this summer. Enjoy!
