Four years in the making, Dante Carfagna’s debut album is also the first full length release on the label he co-owns which has developed a mad cult following, despite having released only 6 instrumental hip hop 45’s since june 1999. Carfagna is recognised as a leading funk & soul authority (check out his quite unbeleivable publication Wax Poetics and you’ll have PURE respect) as much as he is known for his production work. Starting out at the age of 15 making beats for Professor Griff, he was also one of the performers present at the original brainfreeze session in 2000. And the music itself…? just about the most peaceful and folkily psychedelic instrumental breakbeat funk-soul-hop you ever heard. Someone like sage francis or buck 65 might find a way to float rhymes on Carfagna’s light-as-air odes to solitude, but you’re unlikely to see anyone breaking out doubles for juggling. Jus’ nod ya mind ta this…an absolute glorious gem of an album.
