Bullion never fails to surprise. Following ‘You Drive Me To Plastic’, his hyperactive, hyper-condensed album on Young Turks released in April last year, the London producer has dropped the sample-only thing, incorporated instruments and started singing, something he hinted at last time we spoke. Due on R&S on 30th January, Say Arr Ee is lush and lucid, with rich tone after rich tone falling like dominoes in elaborate, hypnotic patterns. It’s a deeply funky ride with vocals treated almost as percussion. The flip, What Does She Know, showcases Bullion’s voice further: a song song, and a bloody catchy one at that. Gold sounds for 2012.
