Michael Mueller This is a terrific album that is eminently playable, but still possessed of enough aural twists and flourishes to reward close or repeated listening.

At time this is reminiscent of The Propellerheads, but then evolves into something darker and close to Tricky's dank musings. At times it even feels like hip hop, or at the very least, intently aware of it.

The beats are hard and true, but they fade in an out to allow more ambient texture to dominate at times.

Play. Repeat! Favorite track: Honest Loose.

about

"Box clever, box fresh, box think-outside-of: Boxwork, a London bassmith who's been smouldering across house, tech and bass circles on the likes of WNCL and LNUK now antes up with a full album on "Shades". Showcasing his breadth on his widest tip yet, we're nudged and sashayed between the lines throughout... The subtle jazzy UKGisms of "Honest Loose", the thundering tribal head-twists of "Life Tour 29", the grainy vocal loops and industrial strength techy kicks of "Phant", the deep sea Dilla breaks of the "Request Line" interludes, the woozy drum loops and leftside timpani of "Ritual" and of course the serious club hitter "Portland Push", this list goes on. This is the sound of an accomplished debut album." - Juno Records
