We have a confession to make. We haven’t been entirely honest. ‘The Acrobat LP’ has been out for over a month now and we’ve been playing it a lot here, but somehow we didn’t write about it yet. And that just doesn’t seem right.
Maybe it’s the fact that ‘The Acrobat LP’ isn’t as flashy as some of the stuff we review here, maybe it’s because there are no real stand out tracks on the album (they’re all really, really good), or maybe it’s the ‘mystery producer’ aspect of this great release that’s been holding us back. Whatever the case may be, this raw, unadulterated and refreshingly intuitive deep house album deserves to be heard. And written about.
‘If you’re still using the Anonymous Producer schtick in 2015 you’re probably Ten Walls’, a wise man wrote on Twitter earlier this year. We hope and pray the Anonymous Producer behind the Grant pseudonym isn’t the fallen homophobic Lithuanian stringmeister trying to get back in the game by exploring the roots of deep house, but we highly doubt it. ‘The Acrobat LP’ is a true work of love created by an open mind.
‘The Acrobat LP’ has been out for quite a while now through The Lauren Bacall.
