Sounding like some remake of a 70’s Psych Jazz album updated for space pod rides through Blade Runner territory, this 9 track LP shows Deflon aka Derrick Curtis developing wings and flying. The synths bend and weave intelligent melodies while his beats chug and dance along like giant aeronautical machines. Synthy gospel chords intermingle with 8 bit sounds that remind one of Metroid as scored by Herbie Hancock for a Kubrick odyssey. This LP is smoother than sex; a narcotic and aphrodisiac ideal for lovemaking and long car rides with your significant other. There’s love, pain, and longing here, but also intimations of a peaceful world in which Deflon serenades you with his beats and melodies, like a giant cosmic healer.
