It has been a long time between drinks for former Soul Jazz Records regular Secondo. Shakin appears almost five years to the day since his last outing on Whataboutnow, the low profile label he established in 2011. On the A-side, he reaches for the synths and glistening guitar solos on a loopy house jam that sounds like it was built out of loops taken from an obscure and overlooked mid-80s Balearic pop B-side. B-side "9 Toms" inhabits similar sonic territory, with the Swiss producer seemingly crafting more sunny, dewy-eyed, loop-house gold out of discarded bits of a 1980s blue-eyed soul song. If Tiger and Woods dug for soft focus sample fare rather than synth-laden electrofunk, it would probably sound like this.
