Fenin Grounded

Having made a name for himself with his uniquely threaded minimal techno style, Lars Fenin makes reggae the centerpiece of his new album, Grounded. Does it work? To a degree. The production is clean and balanced, ranging from electrified reggae-vocal numbers like "No CIA" and "Thrill" to the deeper techno dubbery of "Stony Road" and "Got It." However, the digital cleanliness seems to beg for a little filth to richen things up, and coupled with some overall lo-cal sequencing, the album comes up a little thin in the original flavor department.
