Interfearence: Take That Train

Who knows what interference runs through the brains of producers Paul and Tyrell but whatever it is, it is fed through their expansive mental palette eventually manifesting itself as superior music. Take That Train is an invigorating collection of tracks that can loosely be described as eclectic, organic, electronic, tropical grooves. Beyond categorization, there are elements of house, breaks and bossa and much more on this release. But that doesn’t begin to explain what’s special about it. The opener "Dinheiro" sports Brazilian flair, a wicked bass line, nimble flutes and acoustic guitars – eight minutes of melodic sunshine bliss. "Duck" pulsates with an insistent house groove, adorned with funky guitar riffs, flutes and percussion. With most of the tracks clocking in at least six minutes, each one takes on a life of its own, encapsulating its own journey. "Vari Happy" displays a more subdued tone, flexing a dark breakbeat and moody atmospherics while maintaining a steady groove. "Emotionalize" demonstrates natural versatility, gliding between musical moods and emotions with serpentine ease. Take That Train is a rare breed of album; it engages the listener with its original sound, varied moods and musical mastery. But to hell with all this analysis – just listen, marvel and enjoy.
