Nigel Hayes, half of the group Chaser, releases his first full-length, <I>…But Is It Art?</I> on the Viennese Sunshine Enterprises label. And while the question remains mostly unanswered, we have instead some nice juicy tracks of deep house. The opener, “Shriek (But Is It Art?),” is a quiet mid-tempo piece, while “I’m the Instrument” takes a more tribal tack. “Apocalypse” has a funky bassline that gets you moving, and “Bad Stone” has strings that get you thinking -- before it moves into a real funk. My favorite track, “Ode to Odyssey,” is a neo-disco funk track that doesn’t let up its smoothness for one second, but “Back Together,” a vocal track, doesn’t do much for me. “Makes Me Feel Real Good” slows things down to a nice mellow tempo, and the final track, “Detonate the Charge” is more minimal and dancefloor-oriented. All in all, a good album and a promising debut.
one of my all-time favourite records... full of rich textured tunes. it's got the flow, it's got the jazz, it's got everything...
It's got the uncredited Shriekback sample. (My Spine is the Bassline)
