Info: Multiphonia is the debut album from Compost’s new signing Robinn, AKA Tom Le French. Warm synths, off kilter jazz
percussion and touching melodies escort the listener through the album. Adding to the audio delight is Nathaniel
Pearn, also known as Natural Self from Brighton label Tru Thoughts, who provides thoughtfully felt and timed
Tracks like “Hall Of Mirrors” have a timeless quality. Never predictable and always
thought provoking, tracks like this do not come around often. Descending
basslines, subtle keys and layered vocals make for a delightful treat to the ears.
Meanwhile, “Hawaiian Wedding” creates an interesting change in the LPs
direction, with moody overtones and more aggressive drum stabs, but all the while
maintaining the sleek and slick demeanour that we see throughout the album.
The album rounds off the listener’s journey with ‘False’ an epic dubbed out nu-
jazz/House workout, a must for both living room listening and Room 1 club grooving.
