about

Jake Slazenger's "Ace In The Hole" is his first full album since "Das ist ein Groovy Beat, Ja?" which was released on Warp Records back in 1996. Mike has been trawling the DATs and put together this 15 track compilation which spans the years 1994 to 1999. It is reminiscent in places of his 1995 debut "Makesaracket" with it's DX11 funk lines and distorted Alesis drum sounds.

From the almost vaudeville 'Cockney Knees Up' to the Detroit techno influenced 'Pedia' and from the languid 'Bassie' to the lumbering 'Dub Chicken', the album showcases Jake's variety while still retaining his recognisable sense of melody and off-kilter funk throughout.

Red Crumble is a cousin to "In Pine Effect's" 'Green Crumble' and 'U.F.O.' is a take on the same sample heard in Jake's own 'Hot Fumes'. On 'Lessons' Jake intones the memorable lines "I personally am dominant and I like my women submissive, while dressed in leather, while I teach them lessons that they won't forget." Meanwhile 'Glacid Pop' riffs on the same idea as Jake's 1995 'Acid Pope' track but updating the wiggly acid lines into a more catchy number.

The album finishes, on the almost insubstantial 'Autowah', which seems like a ghostly memory of the times we've had over the last hour and a bit.
