Youandewan 'There Is No Right Time' (!K7/Aus Music)

With his debut album, Youandewan really comes of age. Before now his deeper house sound has been coy, cuddly and charming. Here, though, he matures and conjures some poignant emotions informed by a lonely few months in Berlin. Smeared neon chords, soft-edged drums and fuzzy tape delay mean the whole thing still feels warm and inviting, but there’s a musicality to the melodies and key changes that really elevate the whole affair. Alongside teary-eyed slow-burners, there are loose-limbed hip hop skits and steppy 80s bangers that make you jerk your body. They say house albums don’t work, but the absorbing nuances of this LP debunk that theory.

9/10
