Having previously impressed with a range of loose, organic deep house jams blessed with delicious live instrumentation, Max Graef has decided to go one further. Dog is the debut album from the Max Graef Band, a five-piece featuring the producer on bass, plus a drummer, guitarist, percussionist, and both synth and piano players. Apparently, the majority of the music was the product of impromptu jam sessions, and you can hear it. Throughout their journeys through cosmic funk, deep disco, jazz-funk and organic deep house, you can sense a frisson of excitement and a pleasingly unpolished looseness. Initial copies of the vinyl edition come bundled with a bonus 7". This includes a brilliant, dancefloor-focused Gerald Astor edit of LP highlight "Cbolx".
