Boomkat product review for:

john roberts - Glass Eights

The hugely talented John Roberts arrives at his debut album in style, following a string of celebrated releases on Dial Records. Those releases showcased an individual, beautifully composed sound, combining feathery piano keys and deeply padded, classically-informed House music with elegance and a refined subtlety. His remix services have recently been requested by Darkstar and Creep feat. Romy from the XX, but right now 'Glass Eights' is bound to attract him a lot of attention. He gracefully sweeps and sashays through ten variations on the Piano House theme, from supple Berlin grooves such as 'Navy Blue' to Chicago devotionals like 'Dedicated' and the considerate balance of electronic tenderness and dancefloor heft in 'August', surely giving his label mate Pantha Du Prince a run for his cravat. When he drops the beats, like with 'Went' we can still hear that he's a House head at heart, remaining true to its metronomic structures and strictures, but still manages to find a common ground between modern classical and House music which few others have achieved so succinctly.
