Solid Groove Dubsided Modeler Island Life
- Words: Walker Lindh
- Label: Dubsided
So far so good with the nascent Dubsided label-they've busted out EPs for this spring and summer that bode very well for the future. Solid Groove gives up his namesake over four bastard tracks, from the swirling spliced-sample samba of "Show Me Su'm'n" to the grinningly titled bit of fractured house, "When We Heard Maurice Fulton," and the Madlib-styled "Now We Got To Bump." Modeler, meanwhile, throws down some Afro-tinged house for his title track before treating the flip to Luomo-ish house on "Gett Down" and stunning, laser-sharp electo-conga funk on "Mint Condition."
