Quite whether Lancashire knew of its need for a rival to Chazwick Bundick’s smooth grooves under the guise of Toro Y Moi remains ambiguous at best although this enigmatic Manc outfit, née Oceaán, produce the kind of profoundly inviting downtempo sublimity summers were first intended for. We’re talking South Carolina scorcher here, and not the damp squib of a thing we’ve been experiencing up until this week although if anything could lift any impenetrable gloom, then it would doubtless be this. For Neéd U is sultry neo-soul at its untouchable best – a humid mesh of muffled clacks, irresistible falsetto and exotic rhythmic pump – and ultimately proves utterly impeccable.
