Harlem’s been abuzz with a certain Blanco of late, although there’s another globetrotter worth investing some serious eartime in by the sounds of this one. Solice’s nigh on every previous may be the sort of bump ‘n’ grind, garage-affected schtick Girl Talk spews uncontrollably over his every mix, though Now That I Need You is a step up in its every respect: more polished; more aesthetically pleasing; far less throwaway. Watery Balam Acab-ish synths glint in the plush ambience of latter-day Lapalux recordings, making its artwork of cocked cigars ready for the smokin’ that bit more apposite. Fire away!
