Times Are Ruff - 'The Tink Project' VinylLABEL: Tomorrow Is Now Kid
Times Are Ruff is back on Tommorow Is Now, Kid! with a whole album's worth of that fiery, soul-stewing business for deep house heads who want a little spice in their sauce. On one hand "Wingman" is a brash, stomping cut shaped out by snappy drums, but on the other it's a smooth Rhodes laden affair soaring to the sky - the best of both worlds. "Treehouse" is a more flowing affair peppered with illustrious instrumentation, "Funky Town" gets locked into the New Jersey swing and "In Between" cools things down with a sweet instrumental. "What About Samira" gets right back to it with a rattling jazz funk excursion, "Seven" takes things in a tougher electronic direction, "Behind The Curtain" gets reflective in its lingering chords and then "Nero Verde" finishes the bumper pack of jams off on a pointed, modernist house tip.
