10 months on from his last solo outing – a four-track missive of “Good Vibes” on Midnight Riot – South London’s Shit Hot Soundsystem makes his belated bow on Slightly Transformed. There’s much to enjoy on opener “Playground”, a buzzing, low-slung chunk of mind-altering dub disco full of trippy electronic noises, intense bass, funky guitars and well-placed samples from a New York disco classic. On accompanying cut “Oh My My” he whips off his shirt and runs giddily towards sunny and summery disco pastures, adding his distinctive touch to a glassy eyed early ’80s cut full of chopped-up rifts, celebratory vocal snippets and excitement-building filter sweeps.
