about

Sickla is Peter 'OPOLOPO' Major's first album in five years and easily his most accomplished and enjoyable work to date. It's also a natural progression of the relationship between OPOLOPO and Local Talk, something that started in 2011 with one of the first releases on the label, "The Grit".

There's naturally much to get the blood pumping and the juices flowing on this album, from the carnival-ready Latin percussion, Roy Ayers-esque jazz-funk instrumentation and sparkling synthesizer melodies.

'Loose Limbs' gets the ball rolling and has something of a late 70s/early 80s jazz-funk feel - if you know who Mike Mandel or Wilbert Longmire are, you'll dig this one for sure- Take the same recipe, stir in a little Afro-house flava in the drums department and you'll end up with 'Chocolate Liquorice', while 'Moonwalk' comes on like Dave Lee in his most dreamy, spaced-out moments and 'You Can Make It' takes us closer to straight-up soul territory.

The Rhodes-heavy, organic jazz-house lusciousness of "The Sluggard", the oddly swung but undeniably brilliant jazz-funk jam "Triplet Limp". There are floors out there where these will make great warm-up material, and others where they'll create memorable peaktime 'moments', but either way there's no doubting the quality of the production. It’s an undeniably alluring combination of musical elements on this album and not a duff cut in sight.
