What a lovely listen this is. BarbWalters invites us to a wonderful spread of Future Funk, a feast that could have only been cooked up by someone with a devotional love for Daft Punk and the more continental music that inspired them. That’s what I hear, at least, in the seams between the cuts and edits that make up Reconnect’s eight, brief tracks. The level of detail here is extraordinary – whole new grooves are erected from fragments, voices that stutter, basslines that flicker and contract and expand.
