Boomkat Product Review:
KDJ parps up with his first 12” of original music in years, heralding an as yet untitled new album on the horizon for 2018.
Both sides are writ with Moodymann’s patented Detroit soul brilliance. On side A’s Pitch Black City Reunion (Recorded Somewhere In Detroit) he stirs up a killer house party jazz frisson from swinging hi-hats, devilish double bass, congas, rhodes and sax in a latinate fusion style, reserving a killer vocal until it’s achingly appropriate.
B-side, on Got Me Coming Back Rite Now he pulls the tempo right down to 100bpm for a more sultry vibe, laden with swooning strings and an instant classic vocal layering subtly autotuned R&B coos into a fine lather.
