Addison Groove- Fred Neutron [LP]

by GutterFunk



Addison Groove is no stranger to pushing boundaries, with the Bristol-born-and-bred producer already having an established reputation for cross-pollinating influences; genres such as Footwork, Jungle, Acid, Hip-Hop and Dubstep have all been melded throughout his discography to create hybrid strains. AG crystalizes UK dance music DNA with influences from Dreamscape to Detroit, and further beyond to far-flung corners of the world. Testament to this all, is the Fred Neutron LP - a masterclass in electronic dance music, from one of the UK’s most cherished contributors.

A nod to Addison Groove’s immersion in Bristol’s sound-system culture - ‘Burning Spear’ - opens up the album before heading straight into ‘Brand New Drop’ - a heavy club tool designed for maximum impact on a system, which has been championed by the likes of Nina Kraviz and The Black Madonna.

However, ‘Brand New Drop’ isn’t an anomaly, with club-ready and dancefloor focused tracks a theme which permeate the album from a producer who is also as a sought after DJ worldwide - with Footwork and Juke leaning tracks such as ‘TeknoJuke’, ‘Laguna’ and ‘Out Of Nowhere’ sitting alongside ‘Dreamscape 12’ and its Jungle inspired breaks and infectious bassline - reminiscent of the infamous rave to which it is namesaked.

Let's remember though, this is Addison Groove, the innovator, the boundary pusher. Dance music oddities such as ‘n(y)o͞oträn’, ‘Bass Trips’, and ‘Cider Was Stronger Than The Weed’ providing testament to Groove’s creation of entirely new sounds through an amalgamation of musical influences, whilst ‘ Rele Dawomey ft. Chouk Bwa’ see’s Addison Groove collaborate with Haitian roots musicians Chouk Bwa, furthering AG’s repertoire as an artist.

Bristol is thoroughly represented on the album with the artwork being designed by South West art royalty Cheba.
