Diesler – Sounds Familiar

With past Didiesleresler releases on Tru Thoughts, Freestyle Records, Unique Records & Record Kicks having enjoyed support including Zane Lowe, Gilles Peterson, Bonobo, Mr. Scruff & Craig Charles and across the BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2 & BBC Radio 6 Music networks, the next artist album from Diesler follows on perfectly from 2010’s ‘Tie Breakers’ and his popular compilation series from 2015 ‘A Little Something Radio’, in the shape of the 12 track long player ‘Sounds Familiar’.
Diesler’s much anticipated 5th album which sits perfectly beside his 4 previous artist albums, remix and DJ compilations which have gained thousands of fans and have been supported, played and danced to the world over.
On the release Diesler is joined by a cast of collaborators who in their own right have been firm fixtures in the modern soul underground for years. Jazz vocalist Lizzy Parks & French producer Azaxx (Tru Thoughts) join Diesler on ‘Caught Counting’, UK vocalist Double Yellow (Here & Now) joins Diesler on ‘Human When You Dance’ & ‘Repeat This Moment’ & Gloria Adereti (Classic / Defected) lends her formidable vocal talents to ‘Birds & Bees’.
I was initially worried that the album might be a bit too housey and nu-jazzy for these ears, however the more you listen the more it drags you in. Yes “Sounds Familiar” is aimed firmly at the dance floor, but there are many layers to Dieslers music, each track has a depth to keep listeners interested on and off the dance floor.
“Sounds Familiar” is out now on A Little Something records.
