Album of the month
Nu:Logic 'Somewhere Between The Light' (Hospital Records)
From the opening twinkles of the title track to the melodious jetstreams of ‘Driftwood’, via the gorgeous breaks of LBS collab ‘Sepia’ and the cut-up piano brilliance of Nextmen joint ‘Our Nights’, you know you’re in the safest possible hands here. The Gresham brothers, still the trustiest of Hospital’s label lieutenants in their solo Nu:tone and Logistics guises, release their second long-player of refined, creative, colourful dancefloor liquid, and it’s their best work yet. There are welcome, wonkier moments, with the fidgety ‘Sun Goes Down’ and ‘Strut’, a half-time growler shot through with soul, showing just how talented these two are – but there’s no doubt where they’re most gifted. Dive in.
