Follow up to the Expansions debut single, Breakthrough, which introduced the insanely catchy but deeply soulful blend of synths and groove. The album explores this to the fullest with longer breakdowns and more expansive, experimental solos. The South London jazz-funk/fusion band draw influences from Herbie Hancock, Idris Muhammad and Grover Washington. Albert's Favourites yet again deliver a killer!
