Rima This World
- Words: Mike Battaglia
- Label: JCR
Capable of the most abstract, contorting broken beat rhythms as well as straightforward-yet-immensely-soulful house music, Dominic Stanton (who produces as Domu) is currently at the top of his game. Teaming up with Enrico Crivellero (a.k.a. Volcov) as Rima, Stanton drops a luscious full-length sitting between those two extremes, with jazz fusion playing a major role. Silky vocals backed with mashed-up production meet angular broken beats, and the album drips with live performances from luminaries like Kaidi Tatham and Ian O'Brien; tracks are steeped in the Chicago/Detroit/London tradition. Whether accessible or recondite, This World sounds like a great place to live.
