Talk about Modaji - Pre-Sets

Modaji rightfully became famous for a series of 12”s that helped define broken beat jazz as we know it, and PRE-SETS collects them together into one handy package. It’s an embarrassment of riches, really. Right off the bat, “Starburst Over Orion” sends the listener on a blissful journey right into the stars, while “Shortcuts in Mono” will have you scrambling for your samba shoes. “The Latin Protocol” has a moody and mysterious bassline to ground the rolling percussion and long synth chords; “20-32 Unlimited” has the same vibe, but goes in a completely different direction. “Outboard Jeopardy” is a nice, long jam that shimmers and shines, especially at the break two-thirds of the way through. “Locura Quieta” lives up to its title (“quiet madness”), and the final track, “Endzones,” closes out the album on a slow and dreamy kick. If this is your first encounter with Modaji, it certainly won’t be your last.
