DescriptionIan Pooley is a rarity. Twenty years into his professional career, he is regarded as both a cult underground DJ and established mainstream producer. As one of the only artists that walk the path between the two, his latest work builds on his past and delivers a polished body of work that sounds both classic and fresh. In the past Pooley has scoured influences from around the globe - Detroit, Chicago, Brazil, playing with funk with an emphasis on the groove. Over the course of fifteen tracks, What I Do walks a similarly tactile path, refreshing the listener on Pooleys fullbodied and engaging approach but realigning his signature sound.
This patience is indicative of his deep passion and is also signalled in the four-year break since his last album, the same period that separated his previous two albums. This break in time acts as a space that allows Pooley to absorb and move into his next phase of evolution.
