Mr Scruff - Bunch Of Keys / Cat & Mouse (Version 2)

Mr Scruff - Bunch Of Keys / Cat & Mouse (Version 2)
(12"/Digital) Ninja Tune ZEN12238, 2009-06-08

The Scruffy one does himself proud with two ace cuts lopped from the second disc of his last album for Ninja Tune. 'Bunch Of Keys' is an accomplished jazz-soul groove, set slow and low but with enough trickling funk and wandering solos to keep you locked into the shuffle. 'Cat & Mouse (Version 2)' on the flip is a brilliant example of Scruff's penchant for Latin rhythms and salsa in particular, done here in endearingly lo-fi fashion but still killing the style cold with crafty percussion forming a tight groove before light-footed pianos and an unmistakable Brazilian spirit get caught up in the vibe.
