Funky DL is on top of his game with this album. The production is immaculate and doesn't ever stray off into a pastiche of either of the great producers he is paying homage to with this project. Instead, I imagine Jay Dee and Nujabes reaching for this album on vinyl, to sample its treasures as they work on a fresh track together with the pantheon of hip hop gods gone before their time. Other times I just bump this in the car and freestyle for fun. Smooth, classy and fresh.
