Product Description

Product Description

Neil Davidge, aka Davidge, is a record producer, film and game score composer whose seminal work with Massive Attack helped birth some of the most arresting and innovative music in the electronic / orchestral genre of the Nineties and Noughties whilst also enjoying a parallel career composing for prestigious film, TV and games ventures. His long awaited debut solo album, Slo Light, featuring a host of eclectic guest vocalists. An album deeply-schooled in Bristol, beats, electronica, soundtracks, orchestral music and more, Slo Light creates a fantasy world in which tension, darkness and beauty find the perfect equilibrium. As with all Davidge work the album is sky-high on production values with an unparalleled clarity and sonic depth. Following years of industry respect and renown, Slo Light is primed to be the record that brings Davidge to the ears and minds of many discerning music lovers as a figure of talent and vision, wholl appeal to fans of Massive Attack, Halo 4 and sound-exploring producer/artists like Brian Eno, Moby, William Orbit and Trent Reznor.

Review

Neil Davidge's name may not be familiar but he's been working behind the scenes with Massive Attack since their mid-90's turn toward the dark side with Mezzanine. The Bristolian has finally got round to making an album of his own. It's one which doesn't stray too far from the guest vocalist-plus-moody beats template set by his former collaborators. Cate Le Bon weaving surreal poetry through the electro pulse of Gallant Foxes and Sandi Shaw adding emotional lustre to Riot Pictures' string harmonies. What really fascinates is the way Davidge pulls the music strings throughout --Q Magazine, March 2014

Already a significant name within the music industry, Neil Davidge has previously collaborated with a host of stars such as David Bowie. Massive Attack, Snoop Dog and Primal Scream. His debut album Slo LIght reflects his ability to carefully edit sound to great effect. Full of electronica and orchestral echoes, Slo Light is a collection of songs built on suspense and varied levels of noise. Joined by Sandi Shaw, Cate Le Bon, Karima Francis, Low Roar and others, Davidge weaves together this unique sound with the strengths of others. Also known for composing the music for the Halo 4 game, Davidge has an intricate understanding of the soundtrack genre, which appears in the cinematic interjections he maintains throughout the entire album. This is an impressive and expansive album, one that continues to make him stand out as an influential talent in the music world --Aesthetica Magazine, March 2014

If you've been paying attention to British dance music for the past couple of decades you'll know that Davidge is Neil Davidge, sonic wizard and co-writer of Massive Attack, whose collaborative credits include David Bowie, Snoop Dogg and Primal Scream. This 10 track album (the 2 LP set has five bonus track / 2 discs) offers some stand out music especially the swirly Gallant Foxes featuring Cate Le Bon, the incandescently luminous That Fever featuring Claire Tchaikowski and the spooky trance dance groove of Riot Pictures featuring, I-kid-you-not, Sandi Shaw. In an era when audio quality is generally high this is an outstanding sonic experience with lush depths and pin sharp clarity! --Hi-Fi News Feb 2014

Let me start by saying that 'Slo Light' is a good album, but the £14 price tag is ridiculous! There was an MP3 version somewhere on the web a few weeks before the release of the CD, featuring the 10 album tracks, plus 3 bonus tracks including 'Sensor' which is my favourite track by Davidge. I decided not to buy the MP3s at the time for £8 because I wanted to buy the CD, which I thought would cost £10. Call me crazy, but I still like to 'own' the album in a physical sense so I always buy CDs that I really like rather than MP3s.

However, this release is £4 more than I thought it would be and the three bonus tracks are not even included! I noticed that the album was listed as 'currently unavailable' on its release date and I can't help but think that the reason it now costs £14 is because of a limited release of some kind. But, I am still disappointed by the exclusion of 'Sensor' and 'Hummingbird', both of which would have been great album tracks.

The rest of the album is pretty good, in some places very good. 'Slo Light', 'Riot Pictures' and 'Anyone Laughing' are my favourite tracks on the album; each one bursting with rich, atmospheric music and hauntingly beautiful lyrics. Davidge applies this formula of strong female vocals and dense, moody music throughout the album, but I found certain songs like 'Gallant Foxes' and 'How Was Your Day?' were a little lacking in their execution. I would have gladly abandoned either of these tracks in favour of the two excluded songs that I already mentioned.

Comparisons with Massive Attack's later work were always going to be inevitable and I can't avoid making some myself. For me, this album is basically 10 tracks that all sound a little bit like 'Teardrop' and 'Paradise Circus'.
