No Agreements' resident Electronic wizard Naked Flames returns with his second full length project with the label, "247 365."
Unlike the more spacious grooves of "All Singing / All Dancing," the producer's newest offering is a far more bouncy and energized record that never lets up on the momentum. "247 365" trades in gradient hues of blues and blacks of its predecessor with vibrant pastel purples and pinks, much like what can be found on the cover.
One of the most impressive aspects of the musicians newest project is how different yet connected the record feels to his previous output. While it has changed its approach on a stylistic basis, the same soul and character that made his work so compelling in past is present here too.
"247 365" isn't just an album title, it's a motto. Sometimes life knocks you down or throws bullshit your way, and when it does the best course of action is to stand right back up and get on with it. No matter how rough it gets, you're still moving and there's no time to stop; because this path is all there is and all there ever will be.
Much like the atmosphere of the dancefloors this album would populate, we just need to keep moving and all rinse off together.
Kirby meets 1080° Avalanche in this lite-octane injected albun. In short, a very well-executed (and cute) library of race themes mirroring those of the N64 ages. "Carrot Car" is my top-of-line bobber here, and brings to mind what it's like to drive around in worlds like Pop Star. There's also the NiGHTS into dub tech-house track "Under Every Tree In England", and 80's dance-groove throwback "Tennesse Transit" that gives nods towards nu-wave synth groups like OMD and Pet Shop Boys. Well done. DJ Home Movies
