Personnel: Clara Hill, Ovasoul7, Colin Corvez, Capitol A.
An appealingly playful mix of IDM's artsy, groove-based aesthetic and straight-up dance-pop not far removed from the indie electronic pop style of Pizzicato Five or Saint Etienne, Slope's Komputa Groove is a varied and hugely enjoyable romp. A variety of singers, from Clara Hill's standard-issue, club-diva wails to Ovasoul7's Barry White-style drawl, gives the album some kick. (Eva Nawrot's Macy Gray-style nasal whine on the ballad "There Is No Friendship After Love" is a particular highlight.) But the vocal tracks alternate with a wide-ranging mix of instrumentals that move easily from the classy Euro-electronica of "A Gain," to the disco-friendly epic sweep of the self-explanatory "Funk." Komputa Groove doesn't fit easily into any of the micro-genres of contemporary dance music, but that's a huge part of its charm. ~ Stewart Mason
