Rough or Smooth


Artist: Abel
Label: Atjazz Record Company
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 08 December 2017

Abel's latest album, Rough or Smooth is released through Atjazz Record Company. The LP offers an emotive body of electronic music...

Rough or Smooth sees Abel getting down and dirty with his experimentation of electronic music. In some ways, this is a timeless release that could have been issued in the '90s or 30 years from now. Part Ambient, part Dance album, this is a trippy, heady mix of styles that doesn't out stay its welcome.

It's a relaxing and fun album, but depending on your point of view it's either a little cliched, or refreshingly familiar.

Personally, while I enjoyed this, it's not the sort of album that I'd put on to party with these days... back in the '90s I'd have totally loved it.
