Here is the long awaited third release from John FM. He is a 24 year old rising star from Detroit who follows up two well received EP's on Omar S' esteemed FXHE records - with yet more dusty machine funk for The Trilogy Tapes. He's found a fitting home on TTT, you can really hear it on the A side epic "Ricochet" as it pumps away beneath the lo-fi tape saturation, all hypnotic arpeggios and rusty drum patterns galore. On the flip, it's a classic Motor City affair from the first wave on the rather Derrick May sounding "..And Then Leave" which is in fact remixed by local legend Brian Kage of Michigander and Reference fame. It's a great one packed full of emotive church organs, razor sharp synth melodies and evocative pads. Follows up a great release on the label in the from of Omar S' collaboration with Los Angeles based songstress Nite Jewel on the wonderful "Confess To U".
