    Jodie Abacus

    Jodie Abacus will make you move. It starts with the voice—Jodie's vocals are massive, out-front affairs that use the full capacity of his lungs. It continues with his instrumentation, where there's a grateful debt owed to Stevie Wonder and his squishy synths. And the propensity for movement finishes with the groove—Jodie Abacus finds a pocket and stays there, building beat constructions that won't let you go once the hooks are in.

    "Halfway to Mexico" and "Good Feeling" are funky, disco-tinged affairs that are epic in scope and delicious listening experiences. If you're in a danceable space, get to it.
