Boomkat Product Review:
After lying dormant for the best part of the last decade, James Braddell re-animates his Funki Porcini project for Ninja Tune. Back in the early days of the label, Braddell defined their aesthetic with a mixture of strange synth tones, samples of surreal jazz records and all manner of kooky ephemera, pre-dating DJ Shadow's 'Entroducing' in style and substance and becoming a cornerstone of trip-hop. Taking his merry time, he's conjured more ethereal B-music soundscapes, only this time with more emphasis on live instrumentation, although it's fairly hard to tell the difference anyway. 'On' is a clear update of that sound, using up-to-the minute production to articulate dreamy feelings more clearly, like on the sweeping noirish melancholy of 'The 3rd Man' and its jarring juxtaposition of field recordings and strings, or the skittering electro-acoustic space jazz of 'The Magic Hands Of Fernando Del Rey'. It's still all a bit nostalgic but fans of Trunk records and the Ghost Box releases should have a gander.
