Blues & Soul give Migration 5/5!
Electronic Londoners Jamie Paton and Nigel Of Bermondsey give wings to their debut studio album on Internasjonal, the label run by Norwegian ‘space disco’ donPrins Thomas. It’s far too eclectic and intricate for any old pigeon hole or genre tag, zooming mercurially (and composedly) between future funk, ambient cinemascape, R&B shakedown, electronic jam and embryonic house. But, crucially, accessibility and feeling are there, as much as the evident quality and structure. Cage & Aviary are building a real name for themselves through releases on DFA and Astro Lab, as well as their own label The Walls Have Ears. Their reputation should continue to fly chirpily high over the coming months.
