Project Maldonado EP
Project Maldonado has crept out of some shadowy crevice seeping ethereal R&B from its every pore. The sound of one of my favourite vocalists, Liam Bailey melds a beautifully cloudy tone atop beats probably most welcomed on a London night bus journey, post-party. Throughout his twilight run, he trounces through the voodoo darkness of ‘Rebel’ and brash sensuality of ‘Confessions’ where he doesn’t need to know your name to get ‘fucked with you’. Off of public transport, ‘Seraphim’ conjures up memories of those nocturnal stumbles home with just headphones and the whirs of drugged up police sirens as company.
Someone give me a chewing-gummed seat at the back of the N8.
