Scottish producer Hotknife's debut solo album, Debut, is a booty-shakin' fusion of guitar-laden funk, house, disco, and soul.

'As a guitarist who primarily listens to house music,' explains Hotknife, 'I've always felt caught between genres.' Debut is a reconcilation of those impulses.

Reared on a discofunk diet of Nile Rodgers, Average White Band and French House artists like Alex Gopher and Etienne de Crecy, Hotknife builds on his inflences to create orchestras of funk guitar riffery.

Sitting in on vocals are three unique and exquisite artists.

From Los Angeles come the inspiring raps of Everyman on The Ultimate. 'He has a flow that sits perfectly in the pocket,' says Hotknife, comparing the emcee to Big Daddy Kane.

Last seen with Hotknife on their cover of Wham's Everything She Wants, Richie provides his bright, dynamic voice on two tracks, the incredibly upbeat Right Back and the more introspective Again.

And newcomer Iona Mulholland makes an exceptional entrance on the souful house Breaking Out and funky house You'll Do Tonight, giving both tracks their sultry power.

Debut is a bold collection of house bangers, funky grooves, and disco moves.

Danceability: 10.
