Building off the success of his recent Fabric47 mix, Fuckpony (a.k.a. Jay Haze) drops Let the Love Flow, a house album built from the ground up by his own playing—there are no samples here. From the drums to the horns, Haze builds a record as much about sounds and performance as it is about memorable tracks. The music is at its best on "I Know It Happened" and "Fall Into Me," as guest vocalists Chela Simone and Laila Tov deliver memorable performances that give focus to Haze’s often minimal arrangements. Although ambitious, Let the Love Flow feels more like Haze’s sketchbook than a proper LP, but his sketches hint at a pop prowess that ultimately leaves listeners anxious for a more developed album.
