Bomb the Bass Back to Light
Plenty of people have mentioned the supposed tropical influence on the new Bomb the Bass album. Granted, Tim Simenon worked with Brazilian Gui Boratto (and a host of other guests) on this follow-up to 2008's Future Chaos, and the resulting album is light and breezy. But Simenon has had a wide-ranging career over the past couple decades (he produced Neneh Cherry's "Buffalo Stance" and Seal's "Crazy"), and what ties this album together isn't any sense of Brazil, but rather a more cinematic feel, best exemplified on the spacey "X Ray Eyes" and the spare "Happy to Be Cold." But the hands-down standout is closer "Milakia," featuring Depeche Mode's Martin Gore on synths.
