Boomkat Product Review:
Skip-master DJ Q deals in pure UK dancefloor pop on debut album 'Ineffable' for Tom Lea's Local Action label. Since the early 2000's the Huddersfield-based DJ has been central to the UK garage scene with a massive catalogue of original productions, remixes and not least for his DJ duties at Radio 1 Xtra and countless clubs across the country. For his debut album proper - following nuff compilations and mix CDs - he channels the classic vibes of Todd Edwards and MJ Cole with rugged touches of UK grime and a filtered French disco touch, accompanied by radio-and-club-friendly vocals from a select posse of collaborators - Louise Williams, Kassandra, Kai Ryder, and Discarda. It includes all three singles for Local Action, 'Let The Music Play', 'Through The Night', and 'Trust Again', alongside some brand new beauties such as the disco-burning bubble of 'Get Over You', the feminine 2-step pressure of 'Every Time', and unique UK street soul instrumentals 'Two Faced' and 'Caught Up', plus the frankly hilarious holler of grime MC Discarda juxtaposed with bittersweet synths on 'Lassie'.
