Heirlooms by Dave Aju
Released: May 2012
Label: Circus Company
The San Francisco producer Dave Aju's second album traverses similar territory to his 2008 debut, Open Wide, with moody house grooves and a heavy dose of funk. Ranging from uptempo floor-fillers to low-rider-appropriate cruising jams, the record keeps the palette focused on deep, swirly chords, shuffling drums and suggestive baritone vocals. If there's a ruminative cast to the music, that might be due to its origins: Aju's late father was a jazz musician, and the son extensively sampled his recordings in making the album, turning legacy into tribute.
