Tom Jenkinson's jazz roots come through louder and clearer on his full-length Warp debut.

[Genre: Drill And Bass]

Woah, not only do I get drill but I get BASS along with it? What a steal!

Hard Normal Daddy's a pretty damn catchy and unique drill and bass album, especially with the sporadic compositions and occasional jazz fusions. It gives artificially made music some sort of natural feeling with the use of acoustic instrumentation; it just blends so well with the electronic portions of the album. In summary, this album's a certified Banger™, check it out.

"Hard Normal Daddy" is an Jazz influenced IDM album with enough variation and creative melodies to keep things interesting. It has the frenetic beats that most IDM albums have, but it manages to differentiate itself from its competition.

Highlights: "Beep Street" , "Rustic Raver", "Chin Hippy", "Vic Acid"

I love the jazz influence on this record. The glitchy electronic beats go incredibly well with the unpredictable and erratic jazz sounds which creates an upbeat yet chaotic vibe which kept me engaged throughout. I have to commend the bass playing as well, i love a good bass.

However as is my problem with most glitchy, electronic records i just want more memorable and catchy melodies or soundscapes. I like a ton of songs on this record but i struggle to recall any cool beats or progressions ... read more
