The stunningly prolific Manchester-based beat-monger My Neighbour Is has returned to the Cold Busted label for his eighth album of head nodding delights. Elegantly titled Moon’s Reflection On A Quiet Lake, this set of funky dance floor nuggets showcases the producer’s acumen for punchy, rolling rhythms, smooth melodic textures, and cleverly woven sample tapestries. Some highlights from this delectable downtempo buffet include “The Gas Lamp” with its night cruising funk, the jazzy organ-fueled stroll of “Abstract Paranoia”, “Little Friendly Ghost”’s spacey synth lead lines, and the evocative, wistful feel of “These Moments”. Moon’s Reflection On A Quiet Lake is perhaps the most accomplished effort yet from My Neighbour Is, evidencing an innovative producer on the rise.
