The Mole - As High as the Sky Wagon Repair
- Steve Glencross
- 14 August 2008
Along with Cobblestone Jazz and Hrdvsion, The Mole is one of a small group of artists on Mathew Jonson’s label pushing out quality, dubby, melodic 4/4-club music. After building up a solid reputation with previous releases on Kompakt and Spectral, he now gets round to his debut album. As High as the Sky is held together by deep funk, spun-out synth riffs and soulful vocal loopage. The best bits? ‘Still in My Corner’ is hypnotic/dark club stuff, ‘Baby You’re the One’ is a funk fuelled tech monster and ‘When it Tastes So Good’ is a lovely piece of hazy, echoing house.
