Mocean Worker, Candygram for Mowo!
!K7 Records, Sept. 27

It’s impossible to dislike Adam Dorn, the proprietor of this laptop-jazz establishment. He’s got the heart of a hip-hop producer, the branding sensibility of Deadmau5, the jazz-bass feel of Ray Brown, and a sense of humor. No, not the kind of humor that makes you feel obligated to whip out your fake cackle, but an all-encompassing feel-good vibe that treats neo-Benny Goodman swing (“Shooby Shooby Do Yah,” featuring trumpeter Steven Bernstein) with the same respect as underground hip-hop (Lyrics Born lends a hurried-up Will Smith impression to “My Own Little World,” making it as sunny and immediately relevant as anything you’ve heard from Teddybears). Seriously, we all know the entire world economy is about to collapse, and if you have to choose one party record to mark the end of mankind while celebrating the good of it, this is it here. A+ —Eric W. Saeger
