Boomkat Product Review:
There's no shortage of love for Bodycode in the Boomkat office. Between his Portable and Bodycode pseudonyms Alan Abrahams has consistently delivered some of the most intriguing, funky and genuinely deep house music of the last 10 years. 'Immune' follows from his highly sought after 'Conservation Of Electric Charge' set on Spectral some 3 years ago with a nine track album running fathoms deep into heartfelt Chicago house tributes with an irresistable Afro-rhythmic edge. Take the reverbed keys and chopped dialects of 'Hyperlight' for a warm welcome before settling into the rich twilight hues and gently groping bass pressure of the sublime 'I'll Hold Your Hand'. 'What Did You Say' invites Süd's Lerato to provide authentically sensual vox over a drippin' Chicago house joint, while 'Arigato' is a prime example of his fine attention to detail with ornate Japanese percussion and instruments shaped into a firm but gentle house roller. Further indulging his experimental side 'Spacial Harmonics' mixes cosmic flutes with ascending organ chords creating a spiritual connection to the Afro-cosmic Jazz of Sun-ra leaving album closer and choice deep house cut 'Immune' to win over any doubters with an ounce of soul in their bones. It all came from Africa really, didn't it?
