Seiji SK Tooks Vol. 1: Seiji DJ Tools
- Words: Velanche
- Label: Sonar Kollektiv
- XLR8R Rating: 8/10
DJ tools are arsenals of sound employed by decknicians to work dancefloors in distinctive ways. Paul Dolby (a.k.a. Seiji), one of the most creative and prolific members of the renowned U.K. crew Bugz in the Attic, is an illustrious choice to launch Sonar Kollektiv's new DJ Tools series. If you're expecting only mere incidentals and interludes, cast those expectations aside. "Somehow" is a hand-clapping morsel of bouncy, funky boogie, while "Not You" gets its groovy bassline on. The tracks span two to three minutes on average, but each possesses its own concentrated burst of musical potency. DJ skills not required; open minds and naughty behinds will suffice.
