Luke Solomon's solo debut is a world away from the commercial electro he created as one half of the Freaks. Released on Rekids, one of Britain's most reliably excellent dance labels, The Difference Engine finds Solomon indulging his passion for acid house, Detroit techno and post-punk without ever being in thrall to them. It is a relaxed, loose-limbed affair, inventive and astonishingly hooky, at times reminiscent of a less mannered, less middle-aged LCD Soundsystem. The title track trips lightly down a cutely infectious riff, while cowbells, chants and tribal percussion clatter around. Elsewhere, dramatic disco strings, horn fanfares and jazz saxophone melodies snake their way through the thicket of beats.
